Baltimore, MD (November 22, 2019) — Health Professions Press was a winner in the 28th annual National Mature Media Awards Program. The program, presented by the Mature Market Resource Center, a national clearinghouse for the senior market, recognizes the nation’s finest marketing, communications, educational materials, and programs designed and produced for older adults.
The Inside Scoop on Informed Choice: A Step-by-Step Guide for Personalizing Diets in Long-Term Care by Diane Hall, NHA, RD, LDN, received a Merit Award for Healthcare Publications.
