NACDS' Anderson Says Retailers and Suppliers' “Health and Wellness Renaissance” is Creating a “Historic, Watershed Moment”
Date:4/25/2010

alk about an issue that is vital to the pharmacy and to the front end alike? Imagine the forced closing of more than 11,000 pharmacies -- 20 percent of all stores. That’s ugly,” Anderson said.

Emphasizing the importance of not only reflecting the value of an industry, but also its values, Anderson noted NACDS’ and pharmacy’s efforts to assist the Haitian people in their recovery from January’s devastating earthquake. He said maintaining awareness of continuing needs in Haiti is important because “Haiti has disappeared from the front pages of our newspapers, but it will take decades of work to restore the land of these proud people.”

In his capacity as Chairman of the NACDS Foundation, Anderson made an announcement on behalf of NACDS Foundation President Edith Rosato and on behalf of the entire NACDS Foundation Board of Directors. He announced a $150,000 contribution from the NACDS Foundation to help the people of Haiti, with $50,000 to be donated to each of the following organizations: Doctors Without Borders; AmeriCares; and Convoy of Hope. ''This reflects the many, many steps that all of you have made to assist Haiti at this time,'' Anderson told attendees.

Anderson’s complete remarks are available here.

The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) represents 154 traditional drug stores, supermarkets, and mass merchants with pharmacies -- from regional chains with four stores to national companies. NACDS members also include more than 900 pharmacy and front-end suppliers, and over 70 international members from 24 countries. Chains operate 37,000 pharmacies, and employ more than 2.5 million employees, including 118,000 full-time pharmacists. They fill more than 2.5 billion prescriptions annually, which is more than 72
