President and Chief Executive Officer of Shoppers Drug Mart Corporation to Address The Economic Club of Canada

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 29, 2013) - Canadians are aging. We are living longer, dealing with complex chronic illnesses and taking more costly therapies, all of which are putting an unprecedented strain on our healthcare system. There is an urgent need for practical solutions to ensure the sustainability of our healthcare system for our children and generations to come.

Pharmacists have the expertise to help meet the evolving healthcare needs of Canadians, and the Pharmacy community is committed to working with government and the other healthcare providers to implement change. Shoppers Drug Mart has embarked on a series of white papers, entitled the Sustainable Solutions Reports, which identify practical and implementable strategies for change and highlight the key areas where the broader pharmacy community can have greater impact.

Hear from Domenic Pilla, President and CEO of Shoppers Drug Mart about how pharmacists are uniquely positioned to be part of health care reform solutions and make a meaningful difference in improving health outcomes and care for Canadians, all while reducing costs to the healthcare system.
