“It’s very rewarding to win an award for a campaign that demonstrates how Ellis Medicine is reinventing healthcare in its community,” said Mark Shipley, Co-founder and Strategy Director of Smith & Jones. “It offers the first women’s heart screening program of its type in the Capital Region and is tackling the number one killer of women head-on. We’re proud to be a part of that message.”
