(NYSE: MHS) today announced a national scholarship program to identify and support the development of the next generation of pharmacists. The scholarship program -- one of a number of initiatives Medco has undertaken to advance pharmacy care in America -- will be conducted through the Medco Labor Coalition, the nation's only coalition dedicated to providing pharmacy benefits to small and mid-size labor unions.
