Diplomat Pharmacy and Ageology Anti-Aging Social Network Announce Strategic AllianceFeb 13, 2012 15:22 EST
In an effort to put Chicago on the map as the healthiest city in the United States, Diplomat Pharmacy and Ageology have formed a strategic alliance focused on delivering holistic preventative care to residents of the Windy City.
Officially launched in February as Chicago’s first anti-aging social network, Ageology is on a mission to redefine the physician-patient relationship. As part of that mission, Ageology is partnering with Diplomat Pharmacy, the nation’s largest privately held Specialty Pharmacy, to provide informed, affordable and proactive healthcare to its patients.
“Ageology joins Diplomat Pharmacy with an altruistic goal: to bring affordable and preventive health care to Chicago men and women and make Chicago one of the healthiest cities in the United States,” said Ageology Chief Medical Director Dr. Paul Savage, a leading anti-aging expert and practicing physician specializing in age management.
Ageology is determined to reverse the rise of chronic diseases by bringing preventive health care options from qualified physicians--and physician partners like Diplomat--to the masses. Ageology and Diplomat Pharmacy are fully engaged in the battle against heart disease, obesity, cancer, diabetes, stress, sleep disorders and other chronic illnesses, which can be largely prevented with healthy lifestyle habits and hormonal balance.
Ageology’s Savage and Diplomat Pharmacy CEO Phil Hagerman share a similar vision and mission to play an active role in redefining healthcare and reestablishing the patient-physician relationship. The companies are taking a united stand to deliver patients a practical, proactive approach to wellness.
“It has always been Diplomat’s goal to offer our patients the most innovative approaches to improve health,” said Hagerman. “We combine the technological advances of the biotech revolution with the customized services that keep our patients healthier longer.”
Ageology is an anti-aging news and physician network with a mission to bring Chicago patients fresh alternatives to wellness that promotes longer and healthier living. Ageology physicians take a holistic approach to health, combining nutrition, exercise and balanced hormones to drive optimal wellness. Our anti-aging physician directory and social network equips men and women with the information to make smart wellness decisions.
