CVS/pharmacy to serve as sponsor of American Diabetes Month

BY Antoinette Alexander

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The American Diabetes Association announced on Monday that this November’s American Diabetes Month is sponsored by the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare Advantage for Diabetes savings program, a free offering that provides exclusive savings, prescription management services, recipes and pharmacist tips developed exclusively for those living with the disease, as well as their caregivers.

"CVS/pharmacy is proud to be part of the movement to Stop Diabetes by sponsoring American Diabetes Month," stated Papatya Tankut, VP pharmacy professional services for CVS/pharmacy. "We understand the importance of raising awareness among our customers so that they can better manage their disease. We look forward to working with the American Diabetes Association in helping to further their mission."

Starting on Oct. 1, the association will be asking the public to become part of the movement to stop diabetes by sharing a personal image on the association’s main Facebook page representing what "A Day in the Life of Diabetes" means to them. The image can be a picture of themselves or someone they care about, or otherwise represent how the disease impacts their lives.

To encourage individuals to share photos of A Day in the Life of Diabetes on Facebook, CVS/pharmacy will donate $1 to the American Diabetes Association for every photo/image uploaded, up to $25,000.

Nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. An additional 79 million Americans are at high risk for Type 2 diabetes. Recent estimates projected that as many as 1-out-of-3 American adults will have diabetes in 2050 unless we take steps to stop diabetes.

"American Diabetes Month is a time to communicate the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of diabetes prevention and control," stated Larry Hausner, CEO of American Diabetes Association. "We are excited to be working with CVS/pharmacy to help us further our reach and raise critical awareness about this deadly disease during November."

online-kasino-tester casinodefinition casinozs casinobonusprinz casino-bonus-berg kasino-bonus24 If you have a blog at its beginning, do not publish statistics and various numbers of traffic to your blog. Who would be interested that you have 300 visitors per month? In relation to displaying the number of your feed readers it is the same story.

It would also be a great idea to discuss the different treatment options available for type 2 diabetics, especially since actos went generic not too long ago. I think patients should be aware of the risks vs benefits for popular meds- actos, for instance is associated with bladder cancer. Patients should remember that newer does not always mean better when it comes to medications. http://www.publichealthwatchdog.com/generic-actos-not-worth-the-risk-report-says/

Publix declares common stock dividend to be awarded semi-annually

BY Michael Johnsen

LAKELAND, Fla. — Publix on Monday announced its board of directors declared a semi-annual dividend on its common stock of 30 cents per share. The dividend will be payable and mailed Dec. 3, 2012, to stockholders of record as of the close of business Oct. 31, 2012.

Publix previously paid an annual dividend in June each year. "[But] due to the growth of our dividend over the last several years, our board of directors decided it would be appropriate to pay a semi-annual rather than an annual dividend," stated Ed Crenshaw, Publix CEO. "This semi-annual dividend is about half of the annual dividend paid in June 2012. We plan to pay another semi-annual dividend in June 2013.”

Publix is privately owned and operated by its 153,000 employees.
