News24 and Adcock Ingram OTC are joining forces once more to express the nation’s gratitude toward frontline healthcare workers who have helped through the pandemic shift into 2021

Bravery and strength  

Since the advent of the coronavirus, we’ve witnessed the unwavering bravery and strength displayed by Pharmacists and other healthcare workers. News24 and Adcock Ingram OTC are joining forces once more to express the nation’s gratitude toward frontline healthcare workers who have helped through the pandemic shift into 2021. And this time the focus is on thanking Pharmacy frontline heroes, by nominating your Pharmacist, Pharmacy assistant, or a Pharmacy who always goes the extra mile for their customers and community.

Nicole Austin, spokesperson of Adcock Ingram OTC Sponsors of Brave says, “As a Pharmacist I hold immense value for this campaign, which is an authentic and meaningful expression of gratitude towards the Pharmacy profession. I, myself, am grateful, and more excited than ever to be the Adcock Ingram OTC Sponsors of Brave Spokesperson. In the past two seasons, a growing appreciation for our healthcare workers has been encouraged, and I am certain that this season will cement their immense value in our hearts and minds. I honestly believe that gratitude is our greatest tool to cultivate hope and cast vision for the future. The pharmacy profession is filled with everyday heroes from all corners of the country, and they certainly deserve some of this gratitude.”

Off the heels of success

Following the successful debut and sophomore seasons of Sponsors of Brave that celebrated our healthcare workers and upcoming future Pharmacists, this season wants to cast a spotlight on the existing Pharmacy heroes making an impact in their community.

Andrea Firth, editor of BrandStudio.24 says, “We’re really honoured to be working on a third season of Sponsors of Brave with Adcock Ingram OTC – through this campaign we’ve been able to impact the lives of healthcare professionals and students across South Africa and say thank-you in such a meaningful way.”

Readers and Pharmacists are urged to cast their votes to nominate a Pharmacy or Pharmacist or Pharmacy Assistant they believe are truly enacting change so that these healthcare professionals could win some exciting prizes that are up for grabs. Even nominations stand to win one of eight R5 000 cash prizes!

From the nominations, eight lucky finalists will be selected to be celebrated by their community. Two of these featured nominees will be selected as overall winners: one by a nationwide public vote on the News24 platform, and another chosen by the Adcock Ingram OTC Sponsors of Brave panel of judges. These Pharmacy related professionals will go on to win an exciting opportunity to pay it forward and pursue a passion project of their choice.

The passion project is an opportunity to give back to the community to the value of R25 000; whether this is painting a school, planting a community garden, supporting a soup kitchen, or any other community service orientated activity.

It’s time to celebrate your Pharmacist and their staff and let the nation know where their heroes are making waves.
