Community Involvement Ideas For Your Pharmacy
So many people rely on their local pharmacy to provide them the medicines they need, whether it’s to get through a minor illness or manage a life-long condition. It’s quite the responsibility to own a pharmacy. So, kudos to you for being there for your community! If you’re interested in doing more, there are other ways to support your community that will help strengthen your brand and help your customers in the process. Let’s see how your pharmacy can be more involved in the community.
Host Specialist Nights
One great way to help your community is to give them free access to information whether it is about certain illnesses or ways to stay fit and healthy. You can do this by hosting group meetings, whether it’s online or in a classroom setting, and ask medical specialist to come to speak about specific health conditions and how they can better themselves while combatting or managing them.
Provide Vaccine Clinics
Convenience is key when trying to get working adults into your store for a vaccine. If your pharmacy is only open during normal working hours, 8-6, they may not be able to come in for annual vaccines unless they take time off work. If this is the case, try holding vaccine clinics once a month during the evening hours or on the weekends to accommodate them.
Give First Aid Tips
There will never be a shortage of bumps, bruises and other minor injuries out there. So why not help your community help handle these situations better by providing classes on how to properly administer first aid? From bee stings to how to set a broken arm when emergency help isn’t available, it all comes in handy at some point. And providing this information to your customers will increase their trust and loyalty to your pharmacy giving you more repeat customers.
