I HATE making appointments for check ups. I can never seem to get through the first time (except for with my pediatrician). I spend all this time on hold, I leave messages and rarely do I even get called back (except for my dentist). But scheduling appointments for yearly examines, mammograms (oh WHY do they make it so hard to get those?), check ups or even starting out as a new patient is always so frustrating and time consuming. That’s why I appreciate events like free health screenings. Some basic things can be tested and information obtained making my time spent dealing with doctor’s and doctor’s offices more productive. That’s why I was thrilled to learn of an upcoming FREE HEALTH SCREENING in Houston, at the grand opening of a Houston area Sam’s Club.

Our newest SamsClub is actually a relocation. New building and new features!
As a steward of the communities it serves, Sam’s Club utilizes a variety of environmentally friendly materials and energy-efficient fixtures, including daylight-harvesting skylights that reduce the amount of energy required to light the store by up to 75 percent daily. LED lighting throughout the club, including in the cooler and freezer box doors and jewelry counter, operates 70 percent more efficiently than traditional fluorescent lighting. This building is 136,000 square feet!
