Walgreen to test diabetes services

Wall Street Journal, January 13, 2010

People with Type 2 diabetes will have an opportunity for personal consultations with Walgreen Co. pharmacists and nurse practitioners under a pilot program. Enrollees in the program, operating in Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, and Albuquerque, will be able to discuss medications, weight, and other issues in a one-on-one consultation with a Walgreen employee. After each consultation, pharmacists will contact the patient's primary physician with details from the meeting, the Wall Street Journal reports.
