Mr. Larry J. Merlo

The American Experience Distinguished Lecture titled:

“The Revolution at the Corner Drugstore”


The U.S. health care system is experiencing unprecedented levels of change – with more coming in the next ten years than in the past fifty. How will the health care community evolve in light of all these changes ahead? As a pharmacy innovation company, CVS Health is helping consumers, employers, health plans, physicians and hospitals navigate this dynamic and complex landscape to help people on their path to better health. The company’s recent bold decision to quit selling tobacco products is just one way CVS Health is reinventing pharmacy to deliver better health outcomes, lower costs and drive systemic improvements that create real value for all stakeholders.

Mr. Merlo is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy and serves on the University of Pittsburgh Board of Trustees.
