Shoppers Drug Mart is partnering with Diabetes Canada to launch diabetes health programs within the Loblaw's PC Health app.
"Our purpose is to help Canadians live life well and that means providing the tools they need to successfully manage their overall health – with acute care, mental health support, and help with chronic conditions," said Doug Bryce, vice president, health and pharmacy programs and innovation, Shoppers Drug Mart. "Partnering with Diabetes Canada means the PC Health app now provides Canadians living with diabetes new program options designed by true experts."
The PC health app is designed to provide Canadians with convenient access to health resources and support and is available nationally (excluding Quebec). Users can download the PC Health app to get free, real-time access to virtual chats with nurses and dietitians and earn PC Optimum™ rewards through custom digital health programs.
"We are excited to be working with Shoppers Drug Mart to ensure Canadians living with diabetes can access additional expert resources and support in such a convenient way," says Laura Syron, president and CEO for Diabetes Canada. "The pandemic has highlighted the importance of ensuring access to the most up-to-date resources and education. We're proud to provide Diabetes Canada's expert and evidence-based content to the PC Health app to help expand access and use."
