WAUKESHA, Wis. — Hamacher Resource Group VP Dave Wendland is moderating Drug Store News' Diabetes & Chronic Care Roundtable for the 10th-consecutive year, the company said Tuesday.
The roundtable, part of the DSN Industry Issues Summit, will take place on Dec. 3 at the New York Athletic Club in New York and include participants like Walgreens, Thrifty-White, Costco, H-E-B, Ahold, Kerr Drug, AmerisourceBergen and McKesson/Health Mart, as well as numerous suppliers.
"Dave has done a fabulous job in moderating our annual event," DSN publisher Wayne Bennett said. "He keeps the discussion lively and on point and is very well-informed on the trends, topics and opportunities that drive the diabetes care category forward at retail."
Wendland also looks forward to what Hamacher called a diverse discussion that will explore how the retail pharmacy industry can help patients manage serious health conditions.
"More so than ever, pharmacies need to be part of the adherence equation," Wendland said. "In addition to discussing ideas that can improve patient outcomes, I will put a spotlight on several innovative programs that are making a difference to diabetes patients. When retailers and suppliers work together, there is a much better chance of success. With everyone's input, more robust, comprehensive programs can be created and executed, providing the best in patient care."
