Washington D.C. (PRWEB) October 9, 2007
The 2007 Freddiefor medical media material on Coping has been awarded to HealthMark Multimedia's Moving On®: Tools for Breast Cancer Survivors. The interactive CD-ROM focuses on helping breast cancer patients deal with the physical, emotional and medical sequelae of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The CD-ROM was judged based on excellence and creativity in content, education, production quality, originality and communication. The FREDDIE Awards, also known as the International Health and Medical Media Awards, is the preeminent competition for health and medical audiovisuals. This award will be presented to HealthMark Multimedia at the 2007 ceremony, November 2, in Philadelphia.
Moving On®: Tools for Breast Cancer Survivors addresses the very real needs that women have in coping with the physical, psychological and social changes that occur with breast cancer treatment. The product represents a unique approach to providing information for cancer patients. Through the use of 22 interactive tools, Moving On® encourages women to create a tailored exercise program, engage in full body relaxation and think about what is important at this time in their life; to address their social and personal concerns and improve their interactions with their loved ones and friends and colleagues; and to take an active role in monitoring their health as breast cancer survivors. Its development was funded with a grant from the National Cancer Institute's Small Business Innovation Research Program.
