MetroHealth wins PRSA Silver Cleveland Rocks Award for “Prescription for Hope” podcast

The MetroHealth System's podcast, "“Prescription for Hope,” has been awarded a Silver Rocks Award by the Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) Greater Cleveland Chapter.

The PRSA Cleveland Rocks Awards acknowledge Northeast Ohio’s outstanding PR programs, which incorporate research, planning, execution and evaluation. Award winners demonstrate leadership in public relations and contribute to advancing the profession locally.

“We were excited to celebrate another year of the PRSA Cleveland Rocks Awards at Rocksino,” said Bob Rotatori, president of PRSA Greater Cleveland. “This year’s awards recognized the best work in public relations and communications being done right here in Cleveland.”

Season one of “Prescription for Hope” featured six episodes focusing on the opioid crisis and how the people at MetroHealth are working to battle the epidemic. The opioid epidemic has been called the worst public health crisis in a century. "Prescription for Hope" shares the stories of some of the people working to end the crisis and bring the dawn.

The podcast was produced by Tina Arundel and John Campanelli of MetroHealth's communication team, who are pictured above.
