American Pharmacists Month is a time to recognize the significant contributions to health care and the commitment to patient care by pharmacists in all practice settings.  CVS Caremark is uniquely positioned to demonstrate the value of pharmacy care through its integrated offerings.

"Whether they are providing flu shots in our 7,100 stores, counseling patients in-person or on the phone, or explaining a new specialty drug therapy to a patient, our pharmacists are delivering best-in-class care to their patients every day," said Larry Merlo, President and COO of CVS Caremark.

"Pharmacy care remains the most cost-effective method of treatment in the health care industry, as proper adherence to prescriptions can prevent more expensive outcomes such as hospitalization or long-term complications from chronic disease.  By helping patients stay adherent to their medication therapies, pharmacists play a critical role in lowering overall health care costs while improving their patients' health and well-being," added Merlo.

CVS Caremark will publicly recognize its pharmacists and their commitment to patient care during the month of October with ads in industry trade publications and on its in-store radio network.  The Company will also celebrate National Pharmacy Technician Day on Tuesday, October 26 in recognition of the valuable role its 50,000 technicians play in supporting CVS Caremark pharmacists and serving their patients.About CVS CaremarkCVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS) is the largest pharmacy health care provider in the United States.
