From health and wellness to fitness to branding to policy to medical devices, Media Connect (MC) has been quietly lending our media and branding expertise to authors, doctors, hospitals and other health experts for the past few decades. 

Whether it’s new information on exercise, a cookbook for a specific ailment (e.g. gluten), disease specific information from a doctor or hospital (e.g. heart health, diabetes), advice on navigating your healthcare policy or general health and wellness, MC has tackled campaigns that span almost every facet of the broad spectrum of healthcare topics.  From the health-crazed 1990s, when we promoted Dr. Andrew Weil and Richard Simmons through the early 2000’s with Dr. Atkins and Cass Wheeler, the former CEO of the American Heart Foundation, to the present, promoting leading authorities on health and the healthcare system, MC has been a leader in the health public relations field.

Every campaign is tailored to not only the subject matter but to the overall goals and needs of our authors/clients.  Is the goal awareness?  Brand/platform building?  Book sales?  No matter what the goals, our specialized services and the relationships we have within the health arena can help to achieve them.

A few of our health specific services are:

  • Online Media
  • Social Media
  • Radio / Podcasts
  • Television – Local and National
  • Print – Newspapers, Magazines and Professional/Industry Trades
  • Speaking Engagements – Universities and Conferences

It takes more than luck and word of mouth to keep a book on top of the bestseller list... it takes vision, planning and a dynamic promotional campaign. Planned Television Arts combines professionalism, experience and market knowledge to provide me with the opportunity to reach millions of people each year through print and radio media. I give PTA my highest recommendation.
