November 7, 2007

CVS pharmacists help diabetes patients.

November being Diabetes Awareness Month, CVS/pharmacy will be educating and counseling diabetes patients on topics ranging from identifying symptoms and monitoring sugar levels to managing medications and avoiding medication interactions and potential side effects. In partnership with the American Diabetes Association, CVS/pharmacy has produced diabetes informational materials available in pharmacies across the country. In addition, throughout Diabetes Awareness Month, 1,500 select CVS stores will offer support for patients through Meter Day events, which will include blood glucose meter demonstrations, disease state management discussion and information, educational literature, consumer care, and diabetes care coupon books and a free meter coupon.
