Walgreens Infusion Services

Wag_Logotype_redWalgreens Infusion Services is once again sponsoring Florence Forth at the Super Hero sponsorship level.  Thank you for supporting Florence Forth and the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance.

Providing Immunoglobulin Therapy for Patients

One of the primary treatments for many autoimmune encephalitis patients is IVIG (intravenous immunoglobulin).  As patients get better, some are able to take these treatments at home, saving families travel time and keeping immuno-compromised patients away from hospitals and clinics (where germs congregate).

With an experienced clinical staff of more than 300 infusion pharmacists and 1,200 specially trained nurses nationwide, Walgreens Infusion Services is a leading provider of immunoglobulin (IG) therapy for patients of all ages. Walgreens offers expert IG therapy services for patients, healthcare providers and managed care organizations through their IG Therapy Management Program.

Walgreens manages more than 80,000 IG infusions each year and have provided infusion therapy to more than 4 million patients since 1978. The home IVIG program provides expertise, personal nursing care, and treatment throughout the infusion.

Proud Florence Forth Supporter

When asked why Walgreens Home Infusion supports Florence Forth, a regional sales manager said: “As the largest provider in the home IG industry we are committed to making a difference in terms of promoting awareness and helping patients find treatment. We believe by supporting the efforts of the AE Alliance and by sponsoring Florence Forth we can help educate the community and provide hope for early diagnosis, treatment, and one day, a cure!”

Thank you Walgreens Infusion Services.  Together, we are making a difference and speeding diagnosis and improving treatment.
