England Society for Healthcare Communications (NESHCo) Lamplighter

Lamplighter Awards writing categories.
"This was simply excellent writing that clearly identified the
issues," said judge Jodi Ritacca of HealthEast Care System in St.

strategy and marketing to accomplish the goals including an
impressive invitation by the White House to deliver a national
presentation on global payments."
The award is a tribute to the late Owen J. McNamara, a NESHCo

senior public affairs manager at Boston University's medical center

that recognized the audience and context. McNamara also
served as a writing mentor to several generations of NESHCo

in having her as part of our firm."
