Rite Aid Strengthens Community Relationships at NAACP Convention

The Rite Aid shield was seen far and wide throughout the 106th Annual NAACP Convention in Philadelphia as associates built new relationships in the community and showcased convenient healthcare services like immunizations, RediClinic and HealthSpot.

Rite Aid was a contributing sponsor for the convention, and associates took full advantage of the opportunity to represent the company as caring neighbors.

NAACP with Rite Aid

Rite Aid associates and senior leaders show their Rite Aid pride at the NAACP Convention in Philadelphia, Pa.

“The NAACP brings together people from across the country interested in advancing civil and human rights,” said Kimberly Love, senior human resources manager of Region 75, “and we were honored to be a part of it.”

Wellness Ambassadors and Pharmacists staffed a Rite Aid exhibit that offered immunizations, information about health services and the opportunity to sign up for wellness+ with Plenti.

Next to Rite Aid’s wellness booth, clinical assistants managed the RediClinic exhibit, promoting the services available at RediClinics in the local area. It was especially fortunate for one attendee that the clinical assistants were on-hand at the event. The ill attendee sought medical attention at the RediClinic booth and received immediate care, which the attendee said helped save her life.

Also on display was HealthSpot, Rite Aid’s new virtual health station that allows patients to receive quality health services through videoconferencing and interactive medical devices.

Among the thousands of people who visited these exhibits were the Rite Aid senior leaders in attendance – including Executive Vice President of Pharmacy Jocelyn Konrad, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Dedra Castle and Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer Susan Henderson.
