Walgreens commitment to health equity

Striving for health equity is in everyone's interest, and it's crucial to address the social factors that affect patient outcomes. Walgreens is reimagining local healthcare for all with our nationwide reach, centrally backed initiatives and the evolving role of our pharmacists. We're narrowing gaps in care for underserved populations by understanding the needs of our communities, making healthcare more accessible, educating patients, and collaborating with local and national organizations across the healthcare ecosystem.
