Script Your Future Campaign

I think this is a terrific campaign. I deal with issues of medication adherence on a daily basis with my patients. I have added a link to the campaign from my blog as well. I hope you find this helpful.


Learn all about the Script Your Future Campaign.


The Campaign

Having a serious long-term health problem can take away your chances of a long and full life with your family – if you let it. The Script Your Future campaign is designed to help you take back your future by helping you take your medicine as directed.

Script Your Future is here to help people like you manage health problems such as diabetes, COPD, asthma, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.

Understanding your condition and taking your medicine correctly are important steps toward a longer, healthier life. This campaign can help you with tools to manage your medicines and sample questions to help start a conversation with your doctor, pharmacist or nurse about your medicine.

The National Consumers League (NCL) leads the campaign, with partners from every sector of the health care system, including health care professionals, patient communities, family caregivers, pharmacies, health insurance plans, pharmaceutical companies and associations, as well as government agencies and researchers.

The Script Your Future campaign also includes coordinated national communications, paid advertising and targeted outreach in six cities around the nation: Birmingham, AL; Cincinnati, OH; Baltimore, MD; Raleigh-Durham, NC; Sacramento, CA; and Providence, RI. We are working with local organizations to plan events and activities in these cities. Check the website often to find out about the activities happening near you and ways you can get involved.
