Join the Fight Against America's Obesity Epidemic

As a TAKE CHARGE® pharmacist, you can teach your patients how to live healthier lives through proper nutrition and fitness over the course of 13 weeks. You will meet with them weekly, serving as their educator, motivator, monitor and guide, leading them through trial and error, as they learn and implement healthy lifestyle strategies.

"The weight of the nation is not healthy. And to get it healthy, we're all going to have to do our part. All of us have to be part of the solution to reduce obesity in this country. Otherwise, we're going to be faced with steadily increasing healthcare costs and the lives that are lost from cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other problems."

Join the Fight Against America's Obesity Epidemic

As a TAKE CHARGE® pharmacist, you can teach your patients how to live healthier lives through proper nutrition and fitness over the course of 13 weeks. You will meet with them weekly, serving as their educator, motivator, monitor and guide, leading them through trial and error, as they learn and implement healthy lifestyle strategies.

Take Charge® is a turnkey opportunity designed to enable you, as an independent pharmacist, to transition your practice into the health care arena. You will receive everything needed (all equipment, foods, training, marketing materials, patient education literature etc.) to implement the program and begin seeing patients the very first day.

As your patients begin to lose weight, often times they are better able to control Type 2 Diabetes, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and of course, look and feel better. You will meet with each patient for as little as 15 minutes each week as they move through TAKE CHARGE® patient manuals.

TAKE CHARGE® In Your Independent Pharmacy

In recent years, it has become more and more difficult for independent pharmacies to rely on prescription sales to make ends meet. Competition with the chain pharmacy is tough, so are state cutbacks and mail order mandates. But one of the greatest advantages we have as business owners is the choice to do something new and different in our communities. We have the freedom to explore new business opportunities and take action in a way that will set our independent pharmacies apart from all others.

Join The Fight Against America's Obesity Epidemic.

For decades, community pharmacists have not only been one of the most trusted health care professionals, but also one of the most accessible to our patients. We take great pride in getting to know our patients and being there for them when they need us most. Right now, our patients need professional help dealing with their number one health problem: OBESITY.

Patient Care That Works.

Despite obesity becoming America's number one health problem, few healthcare professionals know how to effectively deal with it. We see it in our pharmacies every day... Our patients are taking prescription medications for High Cholesterol, Type 2 Diabetes, Osteoporosis and several other lifestyle-associated diseases. Meanwhile, they're skipping breakfast, eating lunch on the go and stopping for take-out on their way home for dinner. Most of these patients have spent hundreds of dollars trying countless mainstream diets and failed.

TAKE CHARGE® is NOT a diet.

TAKE CHARGE® is a program of lifestyle modification that will not only make a difference in the lives of your patients but will also make a difference in your pharmacy's bottom line. With TAKE CHARGE® in your pharmacy, you can grow your business and help your community by teaching your patients healthy lifestyle strategies that will help them live longer, healthier and happier lives.
