With March being Pharmacist Awareness Month, we want to hear stories of how your pharmacist has helped you & your family. By sharing your stories with us, you could win a $500 Shoppers Drug Mart gift card. I’ll share the exciting contest details with you here!
Shoppers Drug Mart, in coordination with the Canadian Pharmacist Association, recently executed a new poll regarding Canadians awareness of the services that a pharmacist can provide. Results showed that many Canadians are not aware of all the services available to them. Services do vary between provinces & territories in Canada so it’s best to check with your local pharmacist on what services are available to you.
What You May Not Know Your Local Pharmacist Can Do For You:
- Provide advice on cardiovascular health
- Administer flu shots
- Administer travel vaccines
- Administer other vaccines (like shingles)
- Provide advice on diet/health eating/cholesterol/high blood pressure
- Provide advice on over the counter medications
- Renew / extend prescriptions
- Provide medication review / assessment
We want to know how your local pharmacist has made a difference in your life. Has your pharmacist made suggestions to you with regard to your health concerns? Does your pharmacist put in that extra effort to make your service feel personalized? These are just a couple of examples of stories we’d love for you to share with us. We want to know why you love your pharmacist!
