CVS/pharmacy featured on 'The Doctors'

Pharmacist discusses diabetes management on a budget

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS/pharmacy took center stage on the latest episode of "The Doctors," as one of the chain's pharmacists sat down with one of the show's co-hosts to discuss how patients can manage diabetes on a budget.

Speaking with emergency room physician Dr. Travis Stork, CVS pharmacist Usheema Thomas told an audience member that recently was diagnosed with diabetes how to manage her condition by using a blood-glucose monitoring system. Thomas also discussed CVS/pharmacy's free ExtraCare for Diabetes program and the benefits of enrolling into the program.

"[Just] know that you can talk to your pharmacist about any questions you have about prescriptions that your doctor has prescribed for you for your diabetes, or any over-the-counter problems that you have," she said. "We can tell you about some over-the-counter products that will help you manage your diabetes as well."

As part of Thomas' appearance, audience members received a free CVS/pharmacy gift card.
