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

ces for people with diabetes. The alliance will explore the possibility of installing the Joslin Vision Network tm (JVN) in select locations across the Walgreens chain. The JVN is the most thoroughly validated diagnostic retinal imaging service offering patients a pain-free and non-dilated diabetic eye evaluation that facilitates further examination by eye care specialists to treat diabetic retinopathy and other pathologies.

The JVN is already in use at more than 50 clinical sites in 15 states.

"Diabetes is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness among working age adults in the United States, and yet most patients do not receive recommended care," continued Jacobson, who also directs Joslin's Behavioral Research Program and Clinic and is Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. "Our Walgreens alliance may allow us to bring Joslin's proven techniques in managing eye disease to the millions of Americans across the country at risk of losing their vision from diabetic retinopathy."

New Flagship Pharmacy on Joslin Campus in Boston

Walgreens also intends to open, on the Joslin Campus in Boston's Longwood Medical Area, a specialty pharmacy designed to meet the needs of people with diabetes. "We see this pharmacy as the flagship of our presence in the Harvard medical community," said Weinert. "We expect the pharmacy to open in the first quarter of 2007."
