ACA entered into an agreement with Walgreens Co. to establish a Pilot Program for AngioScreen® in over 40 Walgreens stores in the Nashville area.
Walgreens has characterized the Pilot Program as a highly successful, preventive health initiative based on store traffic and customer exit interview feedback. A total of 2,901 individuals, or an average of 24 per day, had AngioScreens® performed throughout a 20-week period. Average weekly screenings increased to 163, with screenings running as high as 55 in a single day.
The data extrapolated from the Pilot Program confirms and underscores the significant importance of ACA's mission to inform consumers with increased knowledge and awareness of their risk for heart disease and stroke.
