    the proliferation of walk-in health clinics in retail outlets across the country has spawned a new philadelphia-based national trade group: the convenient care association.

    the association will represent the health centers being established in "high-traffic" places such as pharmacies, grocery stores and discount retailers. the clinics, staffed primarily by nurse practitioners and physician assistants, are designed to provide routine, non-emergency health services to patients without appointments.
