West Des Moines, Iowa-based Hy-Vee is offering events in January to help people get a jumpstart on their health goals. Its team of registered dietitians will offer 1,000 free Vitamin D screenings at nearly 60 stores throughout Hy-Vee’s eight-state region.
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that helps support strong bones, facilitate normal immune function and aid in the absorption of calcium. Screenings are administered via a simple finger stick and are available while supplies last. Registration is required and can be made online here. A list of Hy-Vee locations offering the screening can be found below.
Additionally, Hy-Vee dietitians will hold other events throughout the month to promote healthy lifestyles in the new year.
Free Discovery Session
People can jumpstart their health journey by scheduling a discovery session with a Hy-Vee registered dietitian to learn about different services available and choose the right individual program for their wellness journey. Discovery sessions are offered virtually, by phone or in person and are also available in Spanish. Customers can schedule sessions with a dietitian in their local area.
Healthy Habits Menu Program
People can enroll in Hy-Vee’s four-week Healthy Habits menu program. Dietitians provide one-on-one support to help those find a balanced lifestyle that fits their goals.
