ALLERGISTS AVAILABLE TO ALL AT AERIUS® ALLERGY CLINIC IN MONTREAL AND LAVAL SHOPPING MALLS - MERCK
From August 14 to August 26, the public will be able to meet allergists and ask their questions at the Allergy Clinics
MONTREAL, Quebec, Tuesday, August 14, 2012—Following the great success of the Allergy Clinics in past years, Merck Consumer Care is pleased to host for a third consecutive year, the Allergy Clinic in local shopping malls.
From August 14 to 17, 2012, the Allergy Clinic will be present at Complexe Desjardins in Montreal, and from August 23 to 26, at Carrefour Laval in Laval. A kiosk made especially for the occasion will be set up and brand ambassadors will be available to provide useful information to people affected by allergy symptoms. During eight days, the public will be guided by the team through different stations to receive information on allergies.
Participants, allergy sufferers – or those who have someone they know affected by allergies – will also be invited to visit the healthcare section sponsored by Merck Consumer Care. In this section, they will have the opportunity to meet an allergist who will answer their questions and provide information about allergies and different treatment options.
“Our objective with this program is to support people suffering from allergies by providing them and the general public with easy access to useful information on allergies,” said François Woods, Brand Manager.
Visitors will also be able to connect to the online Community to learn the latest information available and share their experiences with other allergy sufferers. For more information: www.aerius.ca.
