from Kaiser Health News
It's not just sore throats and flu shots anymore. Walgreens has become the first retail store chain to expand its healthcare services to include diagnosing and treating patients for chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes and high cholesterol. The move is the retail industry's boldest push yet into an area long controlled by physicians, and comes amid continuing concerns about healthcare costs and a potential shortage of primary care doctors.
