Walgreens and Joslin Diabetes Center form broad alliance to improve diabetes outcomes

omers make it our ideal alliance partner as Joslin strives to deliver our model of patient empowerment and the aggressive identification and prevention of complications across the country."

Pharmacy-Based Resources for People with Diabetes

A cornerstone of the program will be the creation of pharmacy-based resources for diabetes prevention and care. Working together, Walgreens and Joslin will design and build enhanced training curricula, continuing education programs, and practical support tools that pharmacists can use to address the most important needs of patients, from managing medication regimens to understanding key individual health measures like blood pressure and A1C scores.

"Our joint vision is for the Walgreens pharmacist to be a true partner for customers with diabetes and their physicians, and to enable them to work together toward demonstrable and measurable changes in behavior and health outcomes," said Alan M. Jacobson, M.D., Senior Vice President, Joslin Strategic Initiatives Division. "Joslin will design approaches and then assess and report on their impact on Walgreens customers, and we will continually enhance and add to the program over time."

In the first months of the alliance, Walgreens and Joslin will launch initial patient education campaigns delivered through the Walgreens pharmacy that carefully target critical aspects of day-to-day diabetes management and the prevention of complications. The campaigns will include education handouts, tips and tools tailored to specific patient audiences, including the elderly and different ethnic groups disproportionately affected by diabetes. Aspects of the campaign will be visible on pharmacy prescription inserts, Walgreens.com, Walgreens Diabetes & You Magazine, and other communication vehicles.

Joslin and Walgreens are also jointly committed to developing breakthrough approaches over the long term that increase access to innovative health servi
