THE pharmacy industry is throwing its weight behind the Blue September ‘Facing up to Cancer in Men’ initiative. To help Blue September promote awareness and action on cancers affecting men, the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Symbion, Sigma and API have worked with Quilton to produce a limited edition pharmacy-only Quilton toilet tissue pack. The pack’s design includes special messages to raise awareness of risk factors, as well as tips to encourage men to take action for better health. “We’re encouraging pharmacies across Australia to participate in this campaign to support men’s health,” said Guild President, Kos Sclavos (pictured above having his face painted by retail mgr Dianne Button and pharmacist John Button). For every pack sold $2 will go to Blue September’s charities, the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and Bowel Cancer Australia.
