Walgreens, Northwestern Medicine and Near North Health Service are teaming up to launch a new Food Oasis program. Walgreens says this will combat Chicago's food deserts through more healthy groceries and store locations, and Northwestern Medicine says the project will fight diabetes. Meanwhile, RedEye wants Wal-Mart or Aldi to fix the problem.
