Obesity is one of the risk factors for COVID and reducing weight can help reduce this risk. Pharmacies are obliged to offer public health advice as part of the Healthy Living Pharmacy scheme and are therefore a prime place to help customers manage weight and offer products related to diet and fitness. The OTC Expert Course in Diet & Fitness training will give you the knowledge and skills you need to do this.
Diet, Fitness & Covid-19
The importance of living a healthy and fit lifestyle has become increasingly apparent with the coronavirus pandemic putting this directly into the spotlight. As the news came out about obesity being a huge risk factor for the virus many families set out on the course to living a better lifestyle. As well as this national health campaigns were also started to try and combat the obesity crisis in the UK, thus the thirst for more knowledge and demand for advice on the subject has grown. That is where you and your teams come in.
When it comes to health advice pharmacists are always the first point of contact and our communities are becoming substantially more aware of this. The chances are that with New Years resolutions and the motivation to better protect yourself from Covid-19, your pharmacies will be full of people that are looking to get advice and even products to help them aid weight loss. Our OTC Expert Course in Diet & Fitness will better equip your teams to do this.
