A collaboration involving Walgreens and the American Society of Transplantation (AST) seeks to develop future initiatives to help improve medication adherence for organ transplant recipients. One part of the collaboration is a symposium hosted by AST and sponsored by Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy taking place over the 2-day period (April 28 and 29) prior to the start of the American Transplant Congress (ATC) in Chicago. AST and Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy will next focus on a new Adherence Working Group of the Transplant Pharmacy Community of Practice and will seek opportunities to execute these interventions. For AST, the collaboration with Walgreens is also aligned with Power2Save, AST's public-facing initiative. Meen Kang, Walgreens' senior director of transplant product management, said: "Our local Walgreens specialty pharmacy locations across the country work with providers and their patients during and after transplant, providing services designed to make it easy for patients to follow their transplant treatment, with a team dedicated to their individual care."
