This will mark the sixteenth year Wendland has moderated at the event. 

Wendland will be leading the discussion with seven panelists consisting of four retailers, two consumer products manufacturer, and an insurer, including Costco, Rite Aid, H-E-B Pharmacy, Weis Markets, BD, Atkins Nutritionals, and United Healthcare. There will be six topics for input, including patients’ access to care, the pharmacist’s role in chronic care management, prevention, outcomes measurement, and future priorities around chronic care.

Wendland stated, “I am honored and privileged to once again moderate this discussion and be invited by Drug Store News to delve into this important topic. Although I have led this discussion since 2004, there has never been a better time to consider the factors that have led consumers to take a more active role in their well-being, retail formats and options that are addressing the needs of those patients and family caregivers managing chronic conditions, and products and services that have been introduced to assist in monitoring, treating, and maintaining such health concerns.”
