When it comes to helping people along their health journey, we know that it’s important to meet them where they are, with the tools, information and resources they need the most. So when Walmart – the largest retailer and private employer in the U.S. – tapped us to provide our platform to its associates and customers, I knew this partnership had tremendous potential to empower more people than ever to improve their health.
Tomorrow – Saturday, September 22, 2018 – we take this partnership to the next level when we join Walmart Wellness, the largest health fair in the U.S., taking place in 4,600 stores nationwide. Through these quarterly health and wellness events, Walmart has provided more than 2.5 million people with access to important health services like free screenings and consultations with local healthcare professionals and Walmart pharmacists. With Walmart’s expansive footprint – from major urban cities to rural areas – this high-touch approach has made significant strides toward improving outcomes for people at scale.
And as Walmart gears up for its largest Walmart Wellness event yet this weekend, we couldn’t be more excited to integrate high-tech elements to this high-touch experience, as attendees will be encouraged to download Sharecare and learn their RealAge right on-site. Check out this clip from today’s episode of The Dr. Oz Show to learn more and hear right from Dr. Oz himself why participating in Walmart Wellness will be a great way to spend your Saturday.
Thanks to our Walmart partnership, we’re excited to come to your community to help you, as well as your friends, family and neighbors, manage your health wherever you are, whenever you need it. I hope you’ll join us tomorrow when we bring a new wellbeing experience to Walmart near you.
