GCI Health is inspired to make a difference for patients with diabetes. Over the past year, our work with Merck on America’s Diabetes Challenge and the Fasts About Fasting During Ramadan has garnered an extreme amount of industry recognition with six awards and three honorable mentions across various categories including Global PR Breakthrough, Global Healthcare Campaign of the Year, Rx Campaign of the Year, Multicultural Campaign of the Year, Best Use of PSA and Best Use of Marketing Communications. The creativeness of this program, and the ability of the team to bring in fresh thinking, year over year is a true testament to the longevity of award-winning work.
GCI Health has been shortlisted for International Agency of the Year for the upcoming Global PR Week awards. This acknowledgement is a special milestone for the agency, given they have only been truly international agency for just over two years with the launch of their European presence in late 2013. This fact speaks volumes for their current level of recognition and for their even greater potential internationally as they continue to grow.
The shortlist is a celebration of GCI Health’s achievements on both sides of the pond, with the criteria for this category being an agency with an owned presence in at least two markets. In addition, the agency is a finalist in the Healthcare category for MSD’s The Facts About Fasting During Ramadan campaign for the second year running with this awards program.
Winners will be announced in London on April 28.
