In this week’s episode, John reviews CVS’ move to expand its HealthHub stores to 1,500 by the end of 2021. HealthHub stores have expanded space for health-related products and larger health clinics with a lab for blood testing and screening. They also have a general wellness room used for yoga classes and educational events.

We also have our first subscriber feedback, which addresses John’s editorial from last week on Novartis’ new gene therapy priced at $2.1 million.
