Cranbury, New Jersey, February 2, 2021—PM360, a leading trade magazine for marketing decision makers in the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, and diagnostics industries, has named CONQUER: the patient voice™ as the DTC/DTP Pharma Choice Gold winner.
CONQUER magazine is the Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) premier forum for patients with cancer. CONQUER features articles written by and for patients with cancer, survivors, nurse navigators, and other oncology team members. This magazine addresses the issues that patients, their family members, and caregivers face every day in an easy-to-read format. Issues include interviews with patients with cancer, information on access to care, and articles on lifestyle topics such as nutrition, stress management, personal finance, and legal and employer issues.
“It is an honor to be selected as a GOLD winner by our peers,” said Brian Tyburski, President and CEO, The Lynx Group. “CONQUER is an incredibly impactful journal featuring the collaboration of not only The Lynx Group and AONN+, but also the community we serve.”
“Just as AONN+ is the collective voice for patient navigators, CONQUER is the voice for patients, families, and caregivers as they traverse the passages through cancer care and survival. When you visualize the color ‘gold,’ it brings to mind illumination, love, compassion, courage, wisdom, and passion…all found within the creative pages of CONQUER,” said Sharon Gentry, AONN+ Program Director. “It is an honor and a phenomenal acknowledgment of everyone involved in the publication of this tool that navigators use to educate and support their community.”
Since 2009, the PM360 Pharma Choice awards have served as the only industry awards to recognize outstanding achievement and creativity in healthcare marketing by allowing the industry as a whole to choose the winners. All submissions are placed online where anyone in the industry can vote for their favorites based on content, format, imagination, influence on the industry, and overall quality. This year, more than 8,000 votes were cast to decide the winners, which represents a new record high for the awards.
“Creativity can be subjective to judge, but the perfect people to do it are the ones who know firsthand what it takes to develop creative, imaginative, and awe-inspiring campaigns and initiatives within a highly regulated industry such as ours,” says Anna Stashower, CEO and Publisher of PM360. “With this year’s record turnout of votes, all of the winners should take pride in knowing they were chosen as the best campaigns of 2020 by an overwhelming number of their peers and colleagues.”
In total, 39 winners were named in 13 distinct categories: App, Consumer Website, DTC/DTP, Multichannel, Philanthropic, Professional Campaign, Professional Website, Sales Aid, Self-Promotion, Social Media, Unbranded, Variety, and Video. A Gold, Silver, and Bronze award is given to the entries that receive the top 3 most votes in each category.
