Why I love healthcare marketing:
"To market something that is so essential to people’s lives and wellbeing is an invaluable opportunity. Think about it, everyone needs healthcare at some point in their lifetime. What excites me even more is the challenge to make healthcare top of mind before it becomes a need—positioning it as an essential part of daily routine in a fun, clever and/or inspiring way. That’s where I believe digital content and social media can play a large role in truly making people’s lives better, and that’s motivating."
