This is the second Walmart Wellness Day event of the year. This free health screening event provides people in the community an opportunity to learn valuable health information, including:

  • Blood glucose
  • Blood pressure
  • Body mass index
  • Low-cost immunizations

According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 600,000 people in Hawai‘i have prediabetes or diabetes. 

Since its first Walmart Wellness Day event, the company has provided more than two million free screenings to people across the country, helping countless customers uncover existing health problems. For some, the screenings have been life-saving. 

Hundreds of thousands of Americans turn out for each Walmart Wellness Day event, making it America’s largest single day health fair event.
