Leading pharmaceutical business and marketing publication Med Ad News announces the nominees for the 31st Annual Manny Awards, honoring the best in healthcare advertising and communications. Now, more than ever, the role of effectively communicating the research, development, administration and efficacy of drug therapies to HCPs, Payers and Patients alike, is paramount to successfully navigating the world through this pandemic and beyond.

The challenges presented by the spread of the Covid-19 virus and our shared responsibility of mitigating that to the best of our ability continues to impact our daily routines at levels few of us have experienced before. Needless to say, it is also impacting some of our celebrated traditions in the Healthcare Communications Industry.

As part of our efforts, the Med Ad News team recently reformatted our MedAdvocate Jury Dinner to be held virtually.  At this time, it is evident that we’ll have to make adjustments to our April 16th Med Ad News Manny Awards Gala as well. While this is a tough decision on many levels, it is also one we are very comfortable with when viewed through the lens of our industry’s mission in health and wellness.

After careful consideration, Med Ad News would like to announce our rescheduled event for June 18th, 2020, at Pier Sixty, New York, NY.
