Children’s Minnesota and Capture receive Honorable Mention in Ragan’s Health Care PR and Marketing Awards for patient family video

Ragan award Honorable MentionChildren’s Minnesota and Capture recently received honorable mention in Ragan’s Health Care PR and Marketing Awards in the video category for the Star Gala Koch Family Video. Ragan’s award celebrates teams, organizations, consultants and agencies who have redefined the field with their groundbreaking work.

The video was developed for Children’s Star Gala and highlighted the story of the Koch family. Parents Nick and Briana shared the story of Aiden, their first son, who died of an extremely rare genetic disorder shortly after his first birthday. The Koch family gives generously to Children’s. Through interviews and footage of their family life now, the video explains how the genomics team at Children’s gave the family answers: both in diagnosing Aiden’s rare disorder and helping the family move forward with their plans for more children. The video shows a family deeply touched by the care they received at Children’s, hopeful for the future and always mindful of the child they lost.

“Children’s Minnesota and Capture set themselves apart from an outstanding field of applicants. Their work was exceptional and displayed their innovative strategies for achieving success,” said Brendan Gannon, Marketing Manager for Awards Programs at Ragan Communications.
