Date:11/3/2011

prescription. In 16 months, Meijer has dispensed nearly 700,000 free prescriptions of Metformin at a cost savings of more than $6 million to Meijer customers.

Diabetes is a disease that has no cure. More than 26 million American children and adults currently have some form of diabetes. This disease is the seventh leading cause of death nationwide, and is particularly prevalent among older adults, with 27 percent of those 65 years and older diagnosed. The Meijer diabetes care pharmacists will be able to counsel diabetes customers, discuss medication management, assist with testing and log books, and offer tips and tools to eat and live healthier. The diabetes specialists are also well versed in the NuVal nutritional score system employed within the Meijer grocery aisles, and work in coordination with the company's team of Healthy Living Advisors and nutritionists to offer advice on diabetes-friendly foods and recipes.

To help launch this new initiative, all 197 Meijer pharmacies will be hosting a Diabetes Care Event on Saturday, November 5 from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. local time. Blood Glucose testing will be offered at no charge and customers will receive a free pharmacy patient education and sample kit. The Meijer diabetes care pharmacists will be on duty and can assist with questions and explain Meijer's free Metformin prescription program.
