Hi friends,

I hope you had a relaxing and fun July 4th!  Did you know that CURA is Latin for “to take care of”? We aim to take exceptional care of our clients to help transform the health care system, but we can only do that when we take time to recharge! A mental break from work is evidence-based—it can boost creativity, productivity and help avoid burnout. I encourage the team to take time away from work and recently announced unlimited PTO and more flexible work schedules. Personally, I’m just returning from two weeks at beautiful Hubbard Lake in Michigan. It’s amazing what a well-roasted s’more and a sundown pontoon ride can do for the soul.
We also take time to recharge as a team and had so much fun getting back together a few weeks ago with the Potomac Paddle Club after 15 months of not being in the same space! Make time to take time! For those who can safely travel, we hope you’re catching up with loved ones. Share your photos with us by using the hashtag #CURAgeous.
This update is packed with new clients, awards, meaningful work and CURA fun.

Cheers, ,
Last year, alongside our client Honor The Gift, we helped ensure kidney transplant recipients never go without immunosuppressive medications due to an inability to pay. The cherry on top is our work being recognized by multiple leading public relations industry groups, including:
  • SABRE Awards North America Winner for Health Care Campaign of the Year, Pharmaceutical: RX
  • PRSA’s Silver Anvil Award Winner for Public Affairs campaign
  • Thanks to your votes, we also were awarded the PRSA Silver Anvil’s Audience Choice Award for our category as well. You guys are the best!

InsightsCare also recognized CURA Strategies as one of the top 10 most trusted PR agencies in health care. Shout out to bold leadership and building trust. CURA Strategies: Breaking Barriers to Transform Health Care.
