Canada Life, Shoppers Drug Mart launch health coaching service
Insurance company Canada Life has begun a promotional initiative in collaboration with Shoppers Drug Mart that will provide health coaching to consumers via their employers. The program will focus on chronic disease prevention and management. It will be conducted remotely by participating pharmacists, nurses and dietitians.
“Our purpose is to help Canadians live life well, and that means providing the tools they need to successfully manage their overall health,” said Barbara Carnegie, vice-president of payor partnerships at Shoppers Drug Mart. “Now more than ever, Canadians need convenient access to resources that help them navigate their health challenges. Through participating employers, our pharmacists, nurses, and dietitians from our health coaching team can provide the support required to help employees and their dependents both prevent and manage their conditions more effectively.”
