New York, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
Reader’s Digest North America (RDNA) and Health Media Network, LLC, (HMN) have united their efforts to increase education and awareness for Allergy and Asthma month in May 2013. Together they have created an integrated media program for advertisers and brand managers to include a special advertising section in Reader’s Digest magazine, digital ads on ReadersDigest.com and in the Health Reads eNewsletter from Reader’s Digest. In addition, all sponsors will receive waiting room digital TV in physicians’ offices of allergy, asthma and immunology via the Health Media Network. HMN will also provide a custom research study to measure intent to purchase on behalf of sponsors. As with Heart Health month coming in February and Allergy/Asthma in May 2013, the two companies will continue to develop and market a number of programs including Back-to-School in September, Diabetic Health in November and New Year, New You in January 2014.
”We know that allergies and asthma are on the rise,” said Mark Bernardini, Reader’s Digest National Advertising Director. “As the #1 magazine for health and wellness content vs. all measured magazines, it’s our job to educate our readers on the prevention, symptoms, and treatment of these ailments. Through our partnership with Health Media Network, we are able to offer our advertisers a powerful program to reach their target audience in a very measurable way.”
“One in five people in the U.S. have allergy or asthma symptoms. For asthma alone, there are over 24 million people who are affected at a cost of over 56 billion dollars each year -- and its growing.” said Gary Henderson, Chief Revenue Officer for Health Media Network. “In teaming with Reader’s Digest, a trusted source in health and wellness information, we have created a complete media package, including print, online and digital OOH, for advertisers and brand managers to help educate people about managing their symptoms so they can live longer, more productive lives -- while saving health care costs.”
