Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) November 22, 2016
Abt Associates has earned a 2016 Gold MarCom Award from the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals for its outstanding work communicating the impacts of climate change on human health.
Abt’s campaign, “Communicating the Health Impacts of Climate Change,” won in the Research/Study Communications Campaign category. Abt created the campaign through work supporting the Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Change Division. Campaign materials included an infographic that covers the health impacts of climate change throughout a lifespan, an interactive U.S. map of health impacts by state, and a series of nine fact sheets detailing the climate health impacts for populations of concern, including pregnant women, children, the disabled, and the environmental justice community.
“This award is testament to the multidisciplinary approach Abt takes in addressing the world’s toughest challenges, like climate change,” said Josh Lipton, Vice President, Environment and Natural Resources at Abt. “Our rigorous research experts provided the scientific foundation for the campaign, and a team of cross-divisional health and environmental communicators translated those scientific findings into clear information that people can easily understand.”
The MarCom Awards are an annual creative competition recognizing excellence in print, visual, audio, and web materials and programs. More than 6,000 entries are submitted for the awards each year.
