Nutrition is one of the fastest growing healthcare niches. It is profitable, non-insurance, and an area of natural expansion for the community pharmacy. Your patients need a health care professional they can trust for counseling to help them sort through the barrage of information they get daily on supplements, and how they react/interact with their medications. This program will bring you insights from a successful pharmacy practitioner and how they introduced nutrition to their practice.

  1. Discuss methods to evaluate your market for the viability of a nutrition niche.

  2. Create a marketing plan to introduce your nutrition niche to your patients and community.

  3. Summarize examples of cross-selling opportunities with prescriptions and supplements/nutritionals.
