ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Dec. 1, 2022) – The National Community Pharmacists Association today released the second episode of its new educational reality series, “Show Me.” It’s an entertaining video series styled after popular TV makeover shows, only these stars are real pharmacists who need help getting a certain aspect of their business on track. This season the subject is immunizations.
This episode takes us to Wagoner, Okla., where pharmacist Steve Nicholas is looking for help starting a vaccine program from the ground up at the 50-year-old Rogers Drug Company. “Show Me” coach Jonathan Marquess, an owner of multiple stores in Georgia, flew across the country to see if he could help. Can he convince Steve that a vaccination program is an essential revenue stream and build his confidence enough to take the leap? Does life get in the way and keep the Rogers Drug Company team from offering this service to area patients? Watch episode two, titled “Starting From Scratch,” to find out – and to meet Cookie, the world-famous five-legged cow!
The NCPA Innovation Center announced the “Show Me” project, which is sponsored by Pfizer, at the NCPA 2022 Annual Convention in early October. Episodes one and two are now available on NCPA’s YouTube channel, NCPAvids. The first episode received a great reaction among independent pharmacy teams. The remaining three episodes of this season will be released in the coming weeks. Follow on YouTube and on social media @commpharmacy for updates and sneak previews.
