2012 Nonprofit PR Awards: Annual Publication/Brochure


Winner: NYU Langone Medical Center NYU Cancer Institute 2010/2011 Report

To reinforce the fast-rising national leadership role of the NYC Cancer Institute, its communications team strived to create a report that stood out from the rest. To do so, six stories of cancer discovery were selected that best reflected the breadth, depth and scope of the institute both as a cancer center and as a leading academic medical center. The challenge: to convey complex and emotionally charged content in a way that was engaging, compelling and accessible to multiple audiences.

“By staying focused on the central theme of eliminating the burden of cancer, we sought to engage the reader by weaving together several carefully chosen stories of discovery,” says Lourdes Torres, marketing manager at Langone. This innovative approach resulted in a powerful communications tool that has helped differentiate the NYU Cancer Institute from other cancer centers. —SVC
