As part of the company’s effort to encourage guests to pursue healthy living, The United Family announced the continued partnership with the West Texas A&M University nursing program to offer guests free health screenings in March and April at the Amigos and United Supermarkets stores in Amarillo.
Senior-level nursing students enrolled at the university will provide six screenings and personalized health recommendations to guests of the Amigos at 3300 East I-40 and the United Supermarkets at 1501 Amarillo Blvd.
Guests can visit the two stores for a brief screening during the times listed below.

“The United Family continues to look for ways to provide guests with knowledge about the impact of making healthy choices,” said Brenda Duby, corporate dietitian for The United Family. “We are excited to again partner with the students at West Texas A&M for this opportunity, and hope our guests use the health screenings as a tool to learn more about a nutritious lifestyle.”
Each free health screening will include basics such as measuring height, weight, blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index (BMI). Students who are studying Populations Nursing will also discuss educational topics with guests, including type 2 diabetes, heart health, strokes and more.
