Looking for a way to celebrate? We’ve put together some ideas to help jump start your planning process:
Sponsor a local health fair:
Engage your community with fun games and interactive exhibition to provide them with tools and resources to understand, trust, and utilize your practice’s offerings. You may want to co-sponsor this event with a larger institution such as a hospital, health club, non-profit or community center.
Open the floor and your door for your patients to address their health-related concerns and problems. This is a golden opportunity to build a stronger rapport with your patient and make them loyal to your services. You may chose to hold this event at your local church, a popular restaurant or community center.
Staff Volunteer Projects:
Service is a vital component to any Membership Medicine physician. Get your staff involved in efforts that can truly benefit your community.
Host an event for children:
Participate in a library reading hour that emphasizes good health and hygiene or host a fitness activities at your local non-profit or community YMCA. For older children consider speaking at school career days to share the fun and diversity of working in a healthcare environment or participate as a sports booster and/or sponsor at your local middle-school or high school and conduct sports physicals and check-ups/health fairs.
National Concierge Medicine Awareness month is a perfect time to talk to your local media about highlighting how Concierge Medicine is vital to the health and well-being of family members and loved ones. Don’t forget to use social media to get your message across as well.
