Media Display

InStep Health Media Display

For nearly 20 years, pharmaceutical marketers have been using InStep Health programs to engage with potential patients in the aisles of the pharmacy. Consumers pay attention to our displays because the information they find there matters to them at the times that they need it. We call it the Mindset Moment®. Take-ones, prescription savings offers, discounts, and other high-impact educational materials drive the consumer to the pharmacists or physician to find out more.
