February is American Heart Month – taking care of our hearts with love in every way possible!

Pharmaca is holding an Albuquerque Healthy Heart Day on Saturday February 9 from 11 am – 3 pm. (See the Events tab at the link and scroll down to February events for full details.)  If you have a New Year’s Resolution to look after your health better (and honestly, who DOESN’T?) then this could be a good one to check out.

Healthy Heart day includes free cholesterol screenings, consultations with a health care practitioner, free 10-minute chair massages, and free product samples. For the cholesterol screening you need to pay a $10 reservation fee – but you get the ten bucks back in a Pharmaca gift coupon, so the screening is effectively free.

They’re also offering savings of $20 worth of coupons, valid on the day of the event only. While you’re there, Judith Acosta is also giving an Understanding Homeopathy presentation at noon to 1 pm.

If you miss that, there’s also a free Pharmaca Heart Health event on Tuesday February 12 from noon to 1 pm, with Rebecca Phillips, DC. She’ll talk about supplements to support heart health, stress relief, and relaxation, including the health benefits of chocolate.  Excuse me? Did someone say chocolate? Oh yeah, that’s really where I’m at.

Later this month there’s a Chinese Medicine & Heart Health presentation on Saturday February 23, from 1 to 2 pm, with David Salgado DOM talking about the Oriental Medicine approach to a healthy heart.

Contact Albuquerque Pharmaca directly for more details on Healthy Heart events at 8910 Holly Ave NE, (505) 796-0387.

Comments Off on Free HIV Testing Event Tomorrow

We’re big on preventive health care, and nothing is as important as screening and testing for diseases. Early detection dramatically raises survival and cure rates for cancer and other serious health issues.

That’s why we’re pleased to let you know about this FREE HIV screening event!

The Magic Johnson HIV Testing bus will be downtown tomorrow, Wednesday, June 10 (2009), from 3:00 – 7:30pm, on 4th Street between Central and Gold. They’ll be doing free HIV screenings using the OraQuick Advance Rapid Test that only requires a gum swab and returns results in 20 minutes.

This event is sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and NM AIDS Services. They and Mayor Martin Chávez, along with the Downtown Action Team, will hold a little kick-off event at 4:00pm.

With the Magic Johnson HIV Testing Tour, the AHF  is kicking off the opening of a brand new Magic Johnson AHF Clinic in Washington D.C. this year. They will be traveling from Los Angeles to Washington D.C., stopping at fourteen different cities along the route. Their arrival in D.C. will coincide with National HIV Testing Day on June 27th.

Know your status, Albuquerque! Get tested.
