    Walgreens Names Ginger L. Graham to Board of Directors

    This is not about Gender selection.

    It is about the brain synapses and it ability to overcome a set of fixed obstacle's(what is payed for) in the business environment you work in.
    The Multi-channel processing in her work/learning environment has demonstrated her ability to change the outcome of a static process (insurance payment) to a dynamic change in payments for healthcare services.
    The few who are able to engage in this
    understanding, know that the credit is not one persons work, it is shared with her teachers and team mates.

    You are comparing a accountant to a Accounting Firm.

    • Overall Wag looks like there doing quite well. I do agree that to remain in compliance and be politically correct Graham is as good a choice as any. I doubt her Harvi degree is a plus, as Obama has a Harvi degree. That is a negative not a plus, but her gender will avert lawsuits, now that is a plus.

      • This Sector could be sliced and diced like a Synthetic Security.

        CVS & Walgreens is already losing a growing market to the Supermarket Chains, Target and Walmart.
        CVS, reported finanicals today..
        These Big T000 created their nightmare, low prices on consumer products linking this to a "on the go Pharmacy".
        They even put in a drive-up window,
        Micky Dee's.
        The large Consumer product Chain's
        i.e. Wal-mart decided they could beat CVS & Walgreen in the consumer segment, and opened a pharmacy
        (no big deal.. Independent pharmacy's are in abundance by some accounts)
        and realized the profit margins the front end was generating.. compared to the Dollars Rx's would generate.
        So here we are, CVS & Walgreen's are faced with the fact that even Dollar General could get into this segment.
        Both of these company's had for Year's,
        the opportunity to develop medical products & data-based systems that would have changed the cost/access pathway of healthcare.

        Caremark/Baxter now owned by CVS.. did change the cost structure of medical care along time ago, with the Home Infusion segment of Baxter's business units.
        Baxter even developed new products from the Infusion/Caremark division.
        Walgreens home infusion unit was nothing more than bankers com-binding company's.
        My speculation of Wal-mart buying RAD is not that far out.
        Price is the issue.
        My thoughts on Clinics if CVS & Walgeens get that far..

        My point is, many believe and only a few have achieved medical payments that are not linked to event based services.

        Just Think of it as a Flu-shot.
