CVS Caremark To Highlight Commitment To Older Americans At American Society On Aging Conference

Stocks in this article: CVS

WOONSOCKET, R.I., March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS Caremark announced today it would outline its unique position to help older Americans on their path to better health and its senior-focused initiatives at Aging in America, the 2012 Annual Conference of the American Society on Aging, which is being held in Washington, D.C. this week.


CVS Caremark will participate in a number of panels and workshops over the course of the conference that will showcase the company's past, present and future focus on the rapidly-expanding over-55 population. The Company will also introduce a general session on the Political Landscape and Older Adults featuring House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, U.S. Rep Allyson Y. Schwartz (D-Penn.) and Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee.

CVS Caremark continues to focus on being a leader on issues that are important to seniors, both as a pharmacy innovation company uniquely positioned to help patients improve their health while lowering their health care costs, and as an employer that believes that "talent is ageless." The number of CVS Caremark mature workers aged 50 and over has grown from 6 percent in the 1990s to approximately 20 percent today. Acknowledging this, CVS Caremark continues to work with public-private partnerships at the local, state and national levels to recruit mature workers into all facets of its workforce.

"CVS Caremark believes that mature workers are invaluable colleagues in the workplace and also play an instrumental role in our continuing commitment to provide innovative solutions for our mature customers," said David Casey, Vice President, Workforce Strategies and Chief Diversity Officer, CVS Caremark.

The company is also actively promoting the concept of a "pharmacy home," which is especially vital for older patients who take two to three times as many prescription medications. CVS Caremark's extensive research around medication adherence has shown that when patients use one pharmacy to fill all of their medications, they are more likely to take their medications as prescribed and can lower their health care costs by thousands of dollars annually.
