Sam's Club is hosting free children's health screenings Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3Â p.m. at clubs that include a pharmacy. The screenings are available to members and guests.
The screenings will include tests for DNA, fingerprinting, oral health, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure and vision tests.
The BMI and blood pressure tests will be limited to the first 50 participants at each Club location. Adults can be screened as well.
The DNA and fingerprint kits are aids if children are ever lost. They include take-home DNA swabs and instructions on collecting and storing a saliva sample.
The stores will also distribute Sesame Street's "Healthy Teeth, Healthy Me" kits, a DVD and family booklet to teach families about oral health. It includes a game and downloadable "brushy brush" song to make brushing fun.
Sam's Club reports it has provided 1.4 million free health screenings within the past year and a half.
