“We believe that education plays a critical role in healthcare. In this case, we wanted to educate our members on the risks of colorectal cancer – the fourth most common cancer in the U.S. – and the screening services available to them,” said Hollie Arruda, director of marketing at MDwise. “Earning an award for this ad validates that we are successfully creating attention-grabbing digital work with meaningful content geared at improving our members’ overall physical health through education.”
