Event Details

CVS Health President and CEO Larry J. Merlo will discuss corporate America’s role in reducing chronic illness and delivering better health outcomes for consumers at a National Press Club luncheon on Friday, September 19.

Earlier this year, CVS announced the chain would stop selling cigarettes and all tobacco products at its more than 7,600 stores nationwide, expecting to lose $2 billion a year in sales. The company said the sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with its purpose of helping people on their path to better health.

Merlo, who has more than 30 years of pharmacy health care experience, began his career as a pharmacist at People’s Drug, which ultimately became part of CVS/pharmacy. Over the years, he held positions of increasing responsibility including president of CVS/pharmacy.

Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m.

Tickets cost $22 for Press Club members. NPC Members may purchase two tickets at this rate. Non-member tickets cost $36.  For questions, please email reservations@press.org or call (202) 662-7501. Tickets must be paid for at the time of purchase.

NPC Members who wish to attend the pre- luncheon reception must RSVP separately to VIPreception@press.org 48 hours before the event. Space may be limited. You must have a paid reservation to the Luncheon to attend the VIP reception

To submit a question in advance, put MERLO in the subject line and email to president@press.org before 10 a.m. on the day of the luncheon.
