Fri, 6 Oct 2017

Walgreens announced recently the launch of its new Center for Health & Wellbeing Research, a digital space hosting more than 40 Walgreens outcome studies from the past six years including studies by faculty in Johns Hopkins Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

“We are thrilled to be unveiling the Walgreens Center for Health & Wellbeing Research,” said Harry Leider, M.D., Walgreens chief medical officer and group vice president. “Our goal is, through scientific research, to help improve patient care and outcomes while lowering health care costs. We are dedicated to providing value to health care on a national scale and the Walgreens Center for Health & Wellbeing Research will showcase the work we are doing every day to advance that mission.”

“Our long-standing collaboration with Walgreens has given our faculty the opportunity to expand health care services to the retail pharmacy setting,” said Jeanne M. Clark, M.D., M.P.H., the ‘Frederick L. Brancati, M.D.’ Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins medical director for the Johns Hopkins-Walgreens collaboration. “Our work together will have an impact on patients throughout the United States as we identify new opportunities and methods to reach patients where they are to improve the quality of their care.”
