I Am A Heart Attack

My friends at Lexington Medical Center in West Columbia, SC, are pulling out all the stops when it comes to promoting heart health in 2013. They've produced a new television commercial designed to make a big impact. Within the commercial, the viewer meets his or her future heart attack. The concept for the commercial involves the personification of the heart attack, i.e., the heart attack as person. It speaks to us and tells several ugly truths.…

A Collection of Hospital Print Ads For Your Review

Occasionally I will post collections of print ads that I’ve gathered while traveling around the country. This particular group of ads all appeared in a recent issue of DownEast Magazine (January 2013).

As Social Platforms Continue to Evolve, Do You?

Usually I spend most of my time focused on healthcare marketing, social media and the changes taking place within our industry. However, occasionally something pulls my attention in a different direction. These healthy distractions often serve to inform my perspective on healthcare marketing and consumer engagement. That was the case when my wife showed me…

My 2013 Roadshow Is Taking Shape

Speaking at conferences is an important part of my professional life. For me, each speaking engagement is a growth opportunity as well as an opportunity to share ideas and knowledge with colleagues around the country. Each year I go through the process of sending out speaker submissions to various healthcare marketing conferences in the hope that I'll pick up a few speaking engagements. And each year I am surprised by the outcome.

So far 2013 is looking like a good year for my…

Professional Milestones from 2012

As I think back across the last twelve months, it occurs to me 2012 was a good year from a professional perspective.
