The Great Lakes Mall Walker Program will host a blood drive and two health screenings sponsored by Lake Health during October.
On Friday, Oct. 9, from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m., Lake Health will give shoppers the opportunity to help save lives and provide support to the local community by donating blood. The blood drive at Great Lakes Mall, in the Macy’s Concourse, will help to ensure that there is a healthy and reliable blood supply available for patients close to home and throughout the area.
On Thursday, October 15, the Great Lakes Mall Walking Program, which attracts more than 600 walkers each week, will offer complimentary blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) screenings. Attendees will have the opportunity to have their blood pressure and BMI properly calculated and will receive tips about how to live a healthier lifestyle from Lake Health representatives. This event will take place in the Center Court from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
