Watsons & Colgate’s Water Saving Campaign

To encourage customers to make water conservation part of their everyday life, Watsons and Colgate jointly launched a water saving campaign across a number of markets including China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines. Harnessing the opportunity of World Water Day, engaging contents such as games and videos were launched on the brands’ social media platforms, coupled with in-store communications. Customers were educated on behaviours and habits they could implement to consume less water, particularly while brushing teeth. Watsons Singapore also partnered with the Public Utilities Board Singapore (PUB) to advocate saving water amongst Singaporeans.

SOUL programme

Watsons Singapore’s SOUL programme provided students of the National University of Singapore with experiential learning opportunities in the many work environments of the pharmacy practice. The students also accompanied Watsons’ pharmacists to visit the retailer’s volunteering partner, Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home, where they learnt about the responsibilities and challenges of community pharmacists serving nursing homes.

Smoking Cessation Talk

On 13 April, Watsons Singapore’s Principal Clinical Pharmacist and Senior Pharmacist conducted a two-hour lecture for approximately 180 Pharmacy Year 2 undergraduates at National University of Singapore. During the lecture, they taught the techniques of quitting smoking, like how to manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms, and how to deal with slip-ups and relapses. In addition, they also shared about medications useful for quitting smoking, and the roles of pharmacists in helping smokers determine the most appropriate quit plan.
