The Center for Patient is proud to announce the EMSForward Campaign booklet has received a Platinum Award, the highest honor, in the 2017 MarCom Awards. The EMSForward campaign booklet won in the non-profit publications category. MarCom is an international competition administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. The awards represent work across print media, strategic communications, digital media and video.

The EMSForward Campaign booklet was developed by the Center for Patient Safety with creative input and design interpretation by the Primaris marketing team, an affiliate of the Center for Patient Safety.

It’s an honor just to be able to be considered for such an award.

The MarCom Awards recognize outstanding achievement by creative professionals involved in the concept, direction, design and production of marketing and communication materials and programs.
