Village Fertility Pharmacy promotes its Web-based forum with campaign
WALTHAM, Mass. — A specialty pharmacy focused on infertility is sponsoring a giveaway campaign to attract patients to its Web-based forum.
Village Fertility Pharmacy announced Thursday that users of its Village Voices site, an online forum and repository for infertility patients to post stories and share experiences launched in late 2010, will be eligible to win weekly giveaways through the month of February. Any user who submits a story or comments on a story will be entered to win a $30 gift card for use at the pharmacy.
“As a pharmacy staff that has worked with fertility patients for 25 years, we know how lonely the journey can be and how important it is for patients to hear — and become inspired by — other people’s fertility stories,” Village Fertility Pharmacy pharmacist and co-founder Stuart Levine said.
