Vascular Cures Wins Award in
2022 National Health Information Awards Program

Vascular Cures was selected as a winner in the 29th annual National Health Information Awards. This program recognizes the nation’s best consumer health information programs and materials.

The educational flyer “What Is Aortic Dissection (AD)?” received a Gold Award for best Booklet/Brochure/Pamphlet. Those involved in the production and design of “What is Aortic Dissection?” are Vascular Cures and Krames.

“We’re thrilled to be selected for a National Health Information Award because it celebrates our dedication to creating accessible, engaging educational materials both for and with patients. We would like to extend a special thanks to our patient partner Steve for his invaluable insights in the creation of this brochure,” said Vascular Cures’ Director of Operations and Marketing, Katelyn Jackson.

Vascular Cures is a leading national nonprofit exclusively focused on reducing the impact of vascular disease.​ Empowering patients to have a voice everywhere health decisions are made is part of their commitment to addressing the Social Determinates of Health — the complex, integrated, and overlapping social structures and economic systems that are responsible for most health inequalities. For 40 years, Vascular Cures has been a catalyst for patient-centered research, novel multi-stakeholder collaborations, and patient empowerment.

The awards program is coordinated by the Health Information Resource Center, a national clearinghouse for consumer health information programs and materials.
