There are an estimated 20.8 million(1) people in the United States currently living with diabetes, with more than 6 million of those undiagnosed.

"We applaud Rite Aid's commitment to making an impact on this major health epidemic. Through Rite Aid stores and dLife communication channels, including dLife.com and our television program, we will be a significant resource in assisting patients in maintaining control over their disease and improve their diabetes lifestyle."
dLife and Rite Aid will use a variety of communication channels to keep patients informed and engaged. Customers can pick up newsletters and helpful literature with content from dLife at any Rite Aid store. They can also listen to "dLife Diabetes Minutes" on Rite Aid's in-store radio. Additionally, dLife will also be featured in Rite Aid's weekly sales circulars.
Rite Aid customers will be invited to join a valuable dLife-Rite Aid membership program, to receive a variety of special benefits, including free newsletters and documents when shopping at Rite Aid

are committed to providing them with the programs, services and support
needed to lead healthier lives throughout the year," said John Learish,
