Diabetes And Other Health Conditions
Rite Aid is a visible leader in diabetes management. We’ve joined forces with the American Diabetes Association as a national strategic partner. Our pharmacists are trained to answer our diabetes patients’ questions and provide them with the individual guidance they value. Beyond diabetes, Rite Aid stakes a claim as a leader in other important health conditions, such as heart health and weight management. And our pharmacists receive training for each of these conditions, allowing them to serve patients like no one else.
All Rite Aid Pharmacists not only are well versed in traditional therapies, but are provided continuous training on alternative/complementary therapies for whole being health. As Certified Integrative Pharmacy Specialists, our pharmacists sit in the perfect position to enhance their knowledge and practice on alternative/complementary medicine.
