Christina Lindsey Scott’s former doctor uttered two words to her that no one ever expects to hear: “You’re dying.”

That haunting phrase led Scott to quit her job as an executive chef, move to a warmer locale and take control of her health issues. To kickstart her journey, Scott found care and support with Village Medical at Walgreens in Houston.  
“When I started my journey with Village Medical and Walgreens, I was on 17 medications, and now I'm down to two,” Scott says with a smile. Her most recent labs even show her lupus autoimmune disease in remission.  
“I couldn’t have done that without Village Medical or Walgreens coordinating my care,” she says. 
Watch Scott’s incredible story unfold in the latest episode of “Connected to Care,” a new video series by Walgreens that showcases our portfolio of healthcare organizations. The first episode featured Shields Health Solutions, and the second episode highlights how Walgreens and Village Medical together helped Scott achieve her health goals.

I'm 60-some years old right now, which I know I don’t look it,” Scott says through laughter. “I owe that all to them. There's no place else where you can get a doctor and a pharmacist working together to improve your health. And I think that's the key to making people better. Walgreens and Village Medical helped me get to where I am today.”
