It plans to open more in Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, southern New Jersey and Tampa, Florida, by the end of the year.HealthHUBs include an expanded health clinic, with a lab for blood testing and health screenings. There are also wellness rooms for yoga and seminars, dietitians and respiratory specialists in the HealthHUBs.VS may tweak the designs for different markets and store sizes. For example, Hourican said stores in the Northeast tend to be smaller than the ones in Texas, so the company will need to pare it down.Like other retailers, CVS needs to figure out how to keep people coming into its stores, and health services gives consumers something they can’t buy online.

West Hills Community College District (WHCCD) and Univision has partner and launched a series of spots to inform the Spanish-speaking population on the advantages and importance of a college education, along with the benefits available to help them earn a degree.A young waitress balances work and school with driving her mother to the doctor; a landscaper and father of two takes a leap of faith and enrolls for a degree, encouraged by his pregnant wife; and proud parents gather in with the rest of family, taking a photo with their daughter in her graduation robe. Their solution to tackling the problem is “Within our Reach,” a yearlong campaign of 60-second television and radio commercials showing Hispanic students balancing work and family while going to college. The message of the commercials, launched June 1, is not to glamorize higher education, but to send students a message — that the balancing act won’t be easy, but it will be worth the time and effort.These commercials will then be followed up by 20-second segments providing students with information on college classes and programs that will help them overcome barriers they might encounter. There will also be 10-second Univision spokesperson endorsements of college programs, interviews with West Hills students, live TV call centers for viewers seeking more information, and participation in Univision events.Nearly 70% the population in the West Hills District is Hispanic, which extends to Kings County.
