I Love My Pharmacist Social Media Campaign
Post a Photo and Enter to Win a Free iPad!

In celebration of Pharmacists Awareness Month, we have launched a social media campaign I love My Pharmacist.

For the month of March we are asking pharmacists to hand out stickers to their patients and staff and asking them to post a photo wearing the sticker on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #IloveMBpharmacists.

Every person who posts their photo on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag will be entered to win a FREE iPad. We have mailed the stickers to all pharmacies across Manitoba and can't wait to see your photos online. If you are a pharmacist or pharmacy that would like to know more about this campaign or have any questions, please click here. The contest ends on March 31 at 12:00 am and the winner will be announced on Monday, April 3rd. 

This is an exciting opportunity for our organization, since this landmarks the beginning of our presence on Twitter. Please make sure to follow us on Twitter @PharmacistsMB
