Catalyst Conversations

April 25, 2024 | 200 Madison Ave, New York

5:00 - 8:00 PM EST



At this thought-provoking event, you’ll hear from creative leaders and experts from the health industry and beyond speak about transformative approaches to health marketing and tackle difficult subjects, like treating gun violence as a public health epidemic and closing the gaps in health equity. In an era where patients and consumers are more empowered than ever, Clio Health will explore how advertising and marketing are evolving to engage them on their own terms. This event is the first in a two-part series that promises to ignite fresh perspectives and uncover how creativity is driving meaningful change in healthcare and beyond.


Breaking Through the Clutter: The Power of Purpose-Driven Marketing

Focusing on the intersection of culture, society, media, and public health, this discussion will explore how communications, large and small, can lead to beneficial societal change. Through mission and purpose-driven marketing, we can speak to consumers from the heart and refocus on what is most meaningful in their lives – their family, goals and their health. This shift in communication will ultimately improve health care and society as our generation is faced with multiple crises - gun violence, health equity, maternal health. We will talk about the social needs the Ad Council is focusing on, the health needs consumers are yearning for and the power of purpose in driving change.

  • Jose Prince, MD, FACS, FAAP, Chief, Pediatric Surgery, Northwell Health
