The Health Issue — On the editorial front, PRWeek and MM&M have partnered to create a special issue dedicated to the health industry. In our features, editors get the industry's most battle-tested crisis pros to share battle plans to resuscitate the industry's battered reputation. The issue also touches on the best ways to engage millennials in the healthcare conversation and how technology may be key to a more efficient and effective healthcare system.
PRWeek and MM&M have also named the inaugural Health Influencer 50 for their passion, determination, and innovative thinking that has helped guide the industry through two turbulent and exciting decades. The influence of these honorees is felt across the industry — from devising far-reaching, patient-centric strategies to leading the charge on healthcare’s data revolution.
