The following services are provided free of charge:

- referrals for women's services
*If you would like to receive the cholesterol screening, please fast for at least four hours prior to your visit.
**The medication review will be done for those who bring all their current medications to the event.
CVS pharmacist Andre Mackey says, "It is important to understand your risk for chronic diseases before they become a serious health issue in the future." That is why CVS pharmacy is holding these free events. The number of people without health insurance is high and "cost shouldn't be a barrier to preventive care."
