Script Your Future Medication Adherence Team Challenge

In January, NCL launched the seventh annual Medication Adherence Team Challenge. From January 15 through March 16, inter-professional teams—including student pharmacists, nurses, doctors, and others—implemented outreach activities in their communities to raise awareness and improve understanding about medication adherence, using Script Your Future. Since the Challenge began in 2011, more than 12,000 future health care professionals have directly counseled nearly 50,000 patients and reached more than 23 million consumers about the importance of medication adherence. Stay tuned for NCL’s announcement of this year’s winners in May.
