- WAL-MART'S HEALTH INITIATIVE: Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has tapped physician John Agwunobi, current assistant secretary for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as president of the company's professional services division. Agwunobi fills a post vacated by Bill Simon, who was promoted in April to chief operating officer of Wal-Mart U.S. after launching the Bentonville, Ark., retailer's highly successful $4 generic prescription drug program. Agwunobi, who starts Sept. 4, will report to Simon and will oversee the company's pharmacies, vision centers and health care clinics. Wal-Mart has said it is interested in developing new low-cost health care products and services, and has already committed to rolling out health clinics to 400 stores by 2010.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
