The Script Your Future campaign is a national public education campaign designed to raise awareness among patients, their family caregivers and health care professionals, about the importance of taking medications as directed. Led by the National Consumers League, the campaign focuses on patients affected by three serious chronic conditions – diabetes, respiratory disease, and cardiovascular disease. The campaign educates patients about the consequences of poor adherence, encourages patients and health care professionals to better communicate about medication, and offers tools and resources to help improve adherence.

The webinar will explore the lessons learned from developing and leading this public awareness campaign, including:

  •  Details of the background research on message development and implementation of the campaign, supported by a coalition of over 130 public and private partners
  • Update on the latest activities from the campaign, including grassroots activity in the 6 regional markets, and the Medication Adherence Team Challenge, a national health professions student competition
  • Results of recent mid-point surveys in campaign regional markets on patient attitudes and practices regarding medications
