More than 200 industry executives gathered at the Hyatt Deerfield on Sept. 14 to celebrate the release of Drug Store News' recent report on the conceptual overhaul taking place at Walgreens. The report, titled "Rewriting the rule of pharmacy," looked at the new model of pharmacy and healthcare retailing that Walgreens is creating through 8,000 points of care. The reception included remarks from Walgreens president and CEO Greg Wasson and Drug Store News VP/group publisher John Kenlon. In addition, Walgreens VP merchandising Bryan Pugh used the event as an opportunity to introduce attendees to the newest members of the chain's merchandising team.
