Health Observances And Promotional Dates 2007 (January - June)
Jan 10, 2007

Email this article
 Printer friendly page
The following dates are listed by organizations as special times to observe a particular health related subject. Trade associations will designate a date where they can showcase their services. There may be other reasons for these “observances”, but promotion is certainly one of them.  Not all dates are specifically health related. Some are just FUN!

These dates give you many new avenues, and excuses, to promote your services. But, they won’t work by themselves. They are opportunities for creative, bright, and energetic health care promoters.

  • Give a workshop in your office on the theme. Do this workshop alone, or in conjunction with a local professional related to the subject.
  • Promote a special screening for the condition or theme.
  • Work with local related professionals or associates and schedule workshop or screenings outside of the office. You can do this with them, or for them.
  • Set up a donation program in conjunction with a particular theme.
  • Set up your own dates to observe a health condition, as many office that we work with do.
  • Set up a patient appreciation day around a special Candy Holiday!
