Market Your Pharmacy with a 2022 Health Awareness Calendar

Last updated Apr 19, 2022 | Pharmacy Marketing

Creating  a 2022 health awareness calendar this year is a great way to market your pharmacy while promoting patient health. 

Benefits of Creating a 2022 Health Awareness Calendar:

Every month, national organizations and countries around the world come together to share educational content and promote services that support specific health conditions. From cancer prevention to diabetes awareness, these events help bring communities together. They’re also a great addition to your pharmacy’s marketing strategy, allowing you to develop relationships with your audience while advertising relevant products and services. By highlighting different health topics each month and providing themed incentives, you can keep patients engaged and give them a reason to visit your pharmacy.
