You can access social media toolkits, infographics, how-to guides, and more on worldcancer.org. You can also share your own message paired with the image we have created for you below.
National Wear Red Day Social Posts
Organizations around the country celebrate National Wear Red Day® on the first Friday in February every year to spread awareness for heart disease, especially among women.

Black History Month
Black History Month is a celebration dedicated to honoring the achievements, contributions, and rich cultural heritage of Black individuals throughout history. Pharmacies can show their support by using social media platforms to highlight influential African Americans in the field of medicine or promote awareness of healthcare issues that disproportionately affect Black communities. By fostering a sense of inclusivity and recognizing the diversity within the healthcare sector, pharmacies can contribute to the broader conversation surrounding equality and representation.
