We <3 CVS Health
We LOVE partnering with CVS Health to empower young people to join the movement to make the next generation tobacco-free and help their loved ones to quit smoking. You probably know them as CVS Pharmacy – our favorite drugstore, but today CVS Health is a pharmacy innovation company helping people on their path to better health. In 2014, they made the bold decision to quit selling cigarettes and tobacco products in all of their stores – and they continue to be the only national pharmacy retailer to make that commitment. Now, they are focused on helping people who want to kick the habit quit and ensure those who don’t smoke never start. Help us help them achieve that goal.
