Next week is going to be a pretty exciting week for Pixels & Pills. First, we’ll be attending the 10th Annual ePharma Summit. Second, it’s Social Media Week in NYC! We love digital pharma, and social media really gets us excited…see where we’re going with this? That’s right, it’s time for another epic party hosted by your friends at Pixels & Pills!
Join Pixels & Pills at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers on Monday, February 7th for the Pixels & Pills ePharma Summit Tweetup & Phone Drive. We’re kicking off the ePharma Summit right, by teaming up with the folks at Medic Mobile to collect your old, defunct cell phones for their Hope Phones initiative. Here’s more information on how you will be making a difference by donating your old phone:
“Every cell phone given to community health workers connects distant patients to a medical clinic. A $10 cell phone will give 50 families access to emergency medical care, health information, transport services, and clinic resources.
When your old phone is received by the recycling center, it is given a value. Well use this value to purchase appropriate, usable cell phones for community health workers at the medical clinics. The average donated phone in the US will allow us to purchase 2-3 cell phones for clinics.”
Even better: you can win an iPad by participating in the drive! Simply tape your business card (we’ll have a roll of tape on hand at the event as well) to the back of your phone before placing it in the donation box. At the end of the cocktail reception, we’ll draw a random phone from the box, and the donor will win a brand-new iPad! Also, the first 50 attendees to donate a phone to the drive will receive a special secret gift from Pixels & Pills!
