Priceline Pharmacy says it’s aiming to help 50,000 women with its Biggest Women’s Health Check by putting the spotlight on its health services and making its Women’s Health Checks free for a month.
From April 13 to May 7, Priceline Pharmacy is making its Women’s Health Checks free. The consultation is said to take 15 minutes and includes tests for anaemia, cholesterol and blood pressure, plus lifestyle discussions including weight management and breast-check instruction. Women can also check their health on the exclusive in-store digital health stations, which are also free.
Priceline Pharmacy says it wants to improve the health of Aussie women after results from its health stations revealed more than one third of women have two or more health risks, including: high body-mass index, high body-fat percentage, high blood pressure or high resting heart rate.
Broadcaster and author Meshel Laurie is helping spread the message through media interviews, talking about her own experience over the past couple of months of having multiple health checks with a Priceline pharmacist and following the advice to improve her own health.
