Walgreens’ Way to Well program focuses on improving people’s everyday health through the prevention and early detection of today’s leading diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. At checkout, customers can make a $1, $3, or $5 donation via the Pin Pad in support of cancer screenings for underserved populations. In 2014, Walgreens customers showed their support by donating $5.6M during the month of May. Walgreens has donated over $13M to advance ACS’s commitment to health equity by supporting the American Cancer Society CHANGE Grants (Community Health Advocates Implementing Nationwide Grants for Empowerment and Equity) program.
The CHANGE Grant program works to eliminate cancer disparities by collaborating with community partners to increase awareness of ways to reduce the risk of cancer and the importance of regular screening
