Consumer health exposition to focus on family caregiversThe National Association of Chain Drug Stores and Drug Store News will host a consumer health exposition that focuses on the needs of family caregivers.
Initial sponsors of the first-time event, scheduled for May 13-14 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., include Janssen, Pfizer, Consumer Health, Boehringer Ingelheim, AstraZeneca and Novo Nordisk. Retail sponsors include Wal-Mart and Rite Aid.
The organizers expect between 15,000 and 20,000 consumers to attend the Senior Health & Family Caregiver Expo. Admission is free.
The event, in part, is designed as a showcase for enhancing the value of community pharmacy and as an educational opportunity for seniors and family caregivers.
