Since 1971, WHPRMS has sponsored an annual awards program to recognize excellence and success in the practice of healthcare public relations and marketing. In 2023, this recognition will happen through the Prestige Showcase. All WHPRMS members are encouraged to submit their work for an opportuntiy to present a virtual case study and be recognized at the annual conference.
HOW IT WORKS:
The 2023 Prestige Showcase is a series of 30-minute virtual “lunch and learn” care studies. WHPRMS members may apply to present any recent outstanding marketing, communications or public relations project and answer questions from other WHPRMS members.
It’s a chance for our members to showcase their recent work—or to listen in and learn how another member met a health care business challenge with excellent communication.
To be included, please apply here. Once a project is accepted, you will receive a presentation template and work with a WHPRMS board member to schedule your talk.
Presenters receive a certificate, a letter of recognition will be sent to their CEO, and recognition at the 2023 WHPRMS annual conference in October. Prestige Showcase presentations also count toward WHPRMS’s Leadership Recognition Award program, along with our other professional and education achievements.
