WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Caremark has announced that it is an official sponsor of the National Urban League's 2013 Conference in Philadelphia this week and will exhibit at the conference its diversity programs, including work-force initiatives, health screenings and multicultural product offerings.
One of the highlights of this year's conference is the "Career and Networking Fair," which opens Thursday and runs through Saturday. The event will give job seekers an opportunity to meet with CVS Caremark and other Fortune 500, nonprofit and government employers.
CVS Caremark currently employs 200,000 colleagues and was recently named one of DiversityInc's 25 Noteworthy companies for 2013 and a Top 10 Company for Veterans.
In addition to the Career and Networking Fair, CVS Caremark also will have an exhibit booth at the conference. On Thursday, CVS Caremark will offer free health screenings to conference attendees. Visitors who stop by the CVS Caremark conference booth will be able to have their blood pressure, BMI, glucose and cholesterol checked. Pharmacists also will be on hand to answer questions attendees may have about their prescription medications.
On Friday and Saturday the booth will feature beauty consultations and mini-makeovers with product samples from some of the most popular multicultural products lines sold at CVS/pharmacy. Detailed information about the company's ExtraCare and ExtraCare Advantage for Diabetes programs also will be available to attendees.
