Brooke Claussen honored by the HBA

Brooke Claussen, Senior Group Creative Director, Goble & Associates Healthcare Communication (GA), was recently recognized as a Rising Star for 2010 by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA).

HBA Rising Stars are up-and-coming professionals in various sectors of the healthcare industry, including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, advertising, public relations, medical education, and market research, among other fields. Nominated by HBA corporate members, the Rising Stars represent various career stages and disciplines, and have demonstrated noteworthy achievements and proven attention to furthering their careers.

“Brooke has proven herself to be relentless. Relentless in her quest to discover the insights that make her brands resonate in their markets. And relentless in ensuring that her creative solutions are not just attention-getting, but meet the unique needs of the brands and the clients that she so passionately serves,” said Nancy Finigan, Executive Vice President, Account Group Director, Goble & Associates. “She’s a rising leader in our agency, and a rising star in healthcare communications.”

The 2010 award ceremony took place Thursday, May 6, at the New York Hilton in Manhattan. Nearly 100 award recipients were honored at the event this year, which marks the 32nd anniversary of the HBA.

“It’s amazing to see how rapidly pharma marketing is evolving, particularly in the digital arena. This award from the HBA is a great honor, and I’m excited to be part of an ever-challenging, ever-growing field,” said Brooke. “Often within the advertising industry there is a perception that healthcare marketing is all about charts, warning messages, and dry clinical data. The reality is that healthcare marketing requires the same skill and craft as any other form of advertising, and this award from the HBA celebrates that craft.”
