Colin Watts: I’ve joined the Walgreens corporate team as the Chief Innovation Officer which is a fancy title to say I’m helping this leading drugstore chain start to make a major shift into the healthcare arena via new services and innovation platforms. The opportunity is immense especially in the year of healthcare reform, but the commute between Princeton and Chicago leaves a bit to be desired. Still a happy homeowner in Princeton going on 10 years with our three daughters Austen (17), Sydney (14) and Spencer (7) all healthy and pursuing diverse interests. Would love to hear from folks at wattsprinceton@gmail.com or on facebook. Take care, be well.
