• Safeway announced that it is partnering with Lindora Clinic, described as "a national leader in the medical weight loss arena," to open Lean for Life clinics in five Safeway stores.

According to the announcement, Lindora, "already operating more than 35 clinics throughout Southern California, will become the first medically based weight loss clinic to provide services within California grocery stores. These 400- to 500-square-foot clinics will be adjacent to Safeway’s in-store pharmacies. In addition to clinicians who work one-on-one with patients, these new clinics will feature Lean for Life food coaches, who will show clients how to make healthier food choices and develop better eating habits."
