Transparency just might be the buzzword of the decade. You wouldn’t know it, though, if you had to decipher a hospital bill or translate the mumbo jumbo of a health-insurance policy. Ahead of PRNEWS’ Top Women in Healthcare Communications awards luncheon next week in NYC, we asked several awards finalists to discuss the tricky subject of getting closer to clarity in healthcare communications.
Communicators take pride in the messages they craft. They consider their work important. For Dr. Jennifer Mieres, a cardiologist and the keynote speaker at PRNEWS’ Top Women in Healthcare Communications awards luncheon later this month, communicating health information to the public is vital. Her goal is to ensure people have a sound understanding of their role in preventing disease. From there, they can become empowered partners in their healthcare, she says.
There are few topics that touch more people than healthcare. For the broader public, healthcare often is equated with cost. Fair enough: American healthcare spending as a percentage of Gross Domestic Product is enormous. We asked finalists for PRNEWS’ Top Women in Healthcare Communications to discuss several issues, including communicating about cost.
There are few areas more talked about than healthcare. Just look at the recent presidential debates. So, you might think healthcare communicators have it easy. The truth is they need to deal with life and death issues as well as explaining the high cost of healthcare. And what about all that medical mumbo jumbo? Ahead of next month’s PRNEWS Top Women in Healthcare Communications awards, we asked several finalists and honorees about communicating some of the industry’s pain points.
Every fall in NYC, PR News celebrates the agencies with exceptional campaigns at our Agency Elite Awards, which benchmark excellence in PR agencies’ key practice areas, from advocacy, crisis communications and social media to internal communications, media relations and reputation management. As we head into judging phase for this year’s awards on November 20th, let’s look back at some of last year’s highlights.
On July 16 PRNEWS will honor some of the best female communicators in healthcare during its Top Women in Healthcare Communications awards luncheon. NY’s Yale Club will be the venue. Ahead of that gala event, we asked a trio of healthcare communicators, who also will help us present the awards, about how to break through the noise of the internet and maintain the human touch.
There are few fields more compelling than healthcare. And with the stress and regulation involved in healthcare, communicators in this field are some of the most creative, strategic and versatile in the business. It is fitting that PRNEWS is presenting the Top Women in Healthcare Communication Awards in NY during a gala luncheon July 16th at The Yale Club. Communicators from key healthcare practice areas will gather to celebrate, learn and network.
Earlier this month we asked questions of communicators who were honored as PR Professionals of the Year during 2018’s PRNEWS Platinum Awards luncheon in NY. We asked about improving relations with journalists, how brands can maintain a human touch in a tech-driven world and several other topics.
As part of PRNEWS’ 75th anniversary this year, we depart from our normal fare of tips, tactics and strategies and offer a look at the life and times of the founder of this publication, Denny Griswold.
Each year PR News’ CSR and Nonprofits awards lunch is a pastiche of PR tips and tactics and emotion. The 2019 edition, held Friday, was jammed with takeaways and examples of PR using its vast tool kit to do good. We offer a few memories of the awards luncheon, which was held at Washington, D.C.’s historic National Press Club.
