About This Meeting
CVS Caremark Corporation President and CEO Larry Merlo addressed the Detroit Economic Club Thursday, June 5, 2014, on health care and CVS’ decision to cease selling tobacco.
While speaking about tobacco, Merlo said, “It’s vital that the private sector take a visible leadership role on tobacco; it’s the right thing to do, just like our decision to stop selling tobacco products. Tobacco has no place in a healthcare setting, including pharmacies. To sum it up, we don’t see exiting the sale of tobacco as an important decision for just us – we see it as an important decision for public health.”
