NEW YORK, Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bloc came up big at this year’s Creative Floor Healthcare Awards, with recognition in the Mixed Media, Consumer Website, and Self-Promotion categories.
Caregivers Speak Up lets caregivers be part of a community where they can share their stories, fears, and frustrations with the people who understand their situation better than anyone—fellow caregivers. The dedicated website (www.caregiversspeakup.com) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/caregiversspeakup) have reached over 2 million users since launching in June 2015.
At the heart of Caregivers Speak Up is a web platform featuring a documentary film, several short videos, and stories contributed by visitors, plus resources and support. "Caregivers are the unpaid, unsung heroes of healthcare," Elizabeth Elfenbein, founder of Caregivers Speak Up, and Partner, Creative, at The Bloc. "They often put their own needs aside to help others, and the response we have had shows that they have a real need for meaningful support."
Additionally, The Bloc came out on top in the highly competitive Business to Business/Self Promotion category for its “Little Bloc Book” promotion. The agency was also a finalist in 7 other categories.
Established in 2014, the Creative Floor Healthcare Awards are billed as "The Toughest Healthcare Award Show on Earth." Its mission is to inspire brilliant creativity, talent, and diversity in healthcare communication agencies across the globe.
