NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 30, 2006 -- On September 30, 2006, Duane Reade, WCBS Radio 880 and Drug Store News will host the 2nd Annual Caregiver Expo in New York City. The goal of the Expo is to guide caregivers of all ages on how to provide the best care, both inside and outside the home.

Caregivers and consumers alike will hear updates on products and treatment breakthroughs from healthcare professionals and listen to presentations from industry experts on the state of chronic diseases. Participants will also have the opportunity to speak with legal counsel from elder care organizations and seek guidance from financial planners. In addition, hospice care and nursing home spokespeople will be on hand to answer questions.
