Walgreens Clinics Now Treating Chronic Illness

The giant drugstore chain has become the first to enter a growing market: patients who have chronic illnesses and need regular contact with a caregiver --- in this case, physician's assistants or nurse-practitioners. Florida is one of 18 states for this Walgreens experiment, as Kaiser Health News reports.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
