About the Talk: 

Can law/public policy be used to encourage the creation of a social enterprise model in a conventional retail context? This talk will explore how a shift in US healthcare policy, in particular the roll out of the Affordable Care Act, is stimulating the evolution of retail pharmacies into integral partners for healthcare delivery, and how the planned policies of Canada’s next Federal government may result in a similar outcome in Canada.  It will specifically examine how CVS, the major U.S. retailer pharmacy chain, has transformed itself from a conventional pharmacy business to a key social enterprise partner in the provision of healthcare by seizing the opportunity in a healthcare landscape that has evolved due to changes in public policy and law.

About the speaker:

He also has private-sector expertise in stakeholder relations, and corporate & regulatory affairs. Dr. Di Buono is the former Vice President, Science, Research & Professional Education at the American Heart Association (AHA).
