About This Meeting

Walgreens President and CEO Gregory Wasson addressed the Detroit Economic Club on Friday, October 31st, 2014, regarding global healthcare trends and innovative industry solutions as Walgreens merges with Alliance Boots.

This merge will create a new international leader in pharmacy-led health and wellbeing. A primary focus was how the merger will help Walgreens continue to provide affordable care to customers.

“There’s no doubt, not only in the U.S. but in Europe, there’s going to be continued pressure to control healthcare costs. You live it every day, we live it. So we’re going to have to continue to, as a company, reinvent our business and make sure that we can control our cost and makes sure that we can continue to offer access to high-quality care,” Wasson said.
