Woonsocket, R.I. – CVS/pharmacy has kicked off its annual Project Health wellness campaign. Project Health will deliver more than $15 million worth of free health services to multicultural communities across the U.S. in 2014.
During the months of January, February and March, more than 350 Project Health events will be held at select CVS/pharmacy retail locations in 15 markets across the U.S., including Atlanta, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando, New York City, Philadelphia, Tampa, and Washington, DC. Project Health events will also be held at select CVS/pharmacy stores in Puerto Rico in March and April.
Project Health offers an array of free comprehensive health risk assessments. Project Health events will also offer participants' information on the new health insurance marketplace and their coverage options under the new health care law. Health insurance experts will be available at many events to provide guidance.
"Ninety percent of the people who attended our Project Health screenings in the fall told us they found the health insurance experts at these events to be extremely helpful,” said Helena Foulkes, president of CVS/pharmacy. “For that reason, we decided to offer this resource again in early 2014. We are focused on helping our customers make informed decisions about their health care and will continue to do so as the new health care marketplace is rolled out."
