TUCSON, Ariz. — Alex Cosimano, a specialty pharmacy manager at Walgreen Co., is joining the team of medical advisors at Learn Look Locate, a website that provides access to information and advice from health care professionals for breast cancer patients.
Cosimano has more than 10 years of experience in community and specialty pharmacy, oncology infusion, and research. He has assisted in staff training for the drug chain’s Feel More Like You program, which is designed to help patients and caregivers manage the side effects of the disease that impact skin, nails and hair.
“It is such an honor to be a part of this collaboration between Learn Look Locate and Walgreens,” Cosimano says. “We have so many services that many people may not know about, such as how to manage side effects; financial assistance options; and how to take medication as it is prescribed. I look forward to extending these resources to the Learn Look Locate community.
“As a pharmacist, I’m committed to helping patients fit their medication regimen into their lives rather than building their lives around their medication. This includes working to alleviate side effects and helping patients get the best results from their medication.”
Cosimano joins other experts in helping to educate and empower patients via Learn Look Locate’s social media platforms, including Instagram Live.
Dr. Barry Rosen, breast surgeon and senior medical advisor for Learn Look Locate, welcomes the new partnership. “We are thrilled to have Walgreens be part of the Learn Look Locate team and mission because they provide so many valuable resources,” he notes.
For her part, Cynthia Jordan, a breast cancer survivor who founded Learn Look Locate in 2019, says, “We will have a dedicated page on learnlooklocate.com to offer people living with breast cancer and their loved ones convenient access to information about the services available from Walgreens specialty pharmacies. Walgreens is a great strategic partner for us as they share our commitment to empowering people to take control of their health.”
