FMI/Drug Store New Roundtable

Drug Store News editor in chief Rob Eder will moderate an exclusive panel discussion live at the FMI Health & Wellness Conference, Sunday, March 18, 2012. Anchored by retail panelists from the FMI Health & Wellness Council, the roundtable will focus on the opportunities for retailers and suppliers to work together to improve the overall "wellness experience" for the supermarket customers.

The panel will discuss:

  • How brands fit in to the consumer's changing definition of health and wellness.
  • How in-store pharmacists and dietitians can become more accessible to customers, as not just an influencer of purchasing decisions, but an agent.
  • How are supermarket pharmacy operators and their suppliers working together to provide simple solutions and help shoppers navigate the abundance of information.
  • How can brands be leveraged to create a better wellness solution for supermarket shoppers in OTC and HBA as well as food and beverages.
