Heart Rhthym Society Taps Publicis Consultants


- Firm's Cardiology Expertise a Winning Factor -

New York/Washington, D.C., September 24, 2009 – In a competitive review, Publicis Consultants | PR has been awarded a planning project for the Heart Rhythm Society, the international leader in science, education and advocacy for cardiac arrhythmia professionals and patients. The project includes branding and message development, as well as graphic design work for a sudden cardiac arrest awareness campaign that The Society intends to launch in October 2009, coinciding with Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month.

“The Society was impressed with the depth of Publicis Consultants | PR’s experience in the cardiology arena and in particular their experience with the issue of sudden cardiac arrest,” said Charlie Jones, Vice President of Marketing at The Heart Rhythm Society. “We’re pleased to have Publicis Consultants | PR on board to help establish this vital program.”

Sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 250,000 Americans each year -- more than AIDS, breast cancer or lung cancer -- so the issue warrants a full awareness campaign to better inform physicians and patients about the condition. The project will be managed by the Publicis Consultants | PR team in New York which has experience working on a wide portfolio of cardiovascular education and awareness programs.

“We have enormous respect for The Society and are pleased to have the opportunity to help them build the foundation for this very important awareness initiative,” notes Wendy Lund, CEO of Publicis Consultants | PR. “This assignment is a strong indication of our innovative creative work as well as our solid expertise with heart disease.”
