Date:3/27/2008

Joint program provides improved access to health education and benefits for

seniors in communities across America

WASHINGTON, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Aging in America Conference today in Washington, D.C., CVS/pharmacy and the National Council on Aging (NCOA) announced a three-year extension of their partnership created to improve the health and well-being of older Americans. Their joint "Prescription for Better Health" program, underway since 2007, provides improved access to health education and senior benefits through the nationwide networks of over 6,300 CVS/pharmacy stores and NCOA's Senior Center members and other affiliated community-based organizations.

"In the first year of our relationship with CVS/pharmacy, we've been able to touch an encouraging number of seniors in communities across the country, providing education on medications and benefits of importance to seniors," said James Firman, President and CEO of NCOA. "We're delighted to extend this partnership so these efforts can continue to grow."

Components of the "Prescription for Better Health" program include:

-- Medication Management: CVS pharmacists host information sessions at

NCOA-affiliated organizations that focus on managing medications

effectively and preventing possible drug interactions. Attendees have

the opportunity to review their medications with a CVS pharmacist and

receive tips on medication management.

-- Education: CVS/pharmacy and NCOA inform seniors about taking better

care of their health through the availability of educational resources

in CVS/pharmacy locations nationwide. On an ongoing basis, the

CVS/pharmacy Wellness Information Centers offer information on health

issues, disease states, and advice for caregivers.

-- Access: CVS/pharmacy is helping to make seniors and caregivers aware
