Akron General starts new awareness campaign

GREATER AKRON — Akron General Health System is launching a new awareness and consumer engagement campaign. The campaign’s tagline “My Health. My Life.” is being supported with messaging that Akron General is there to help and guide everyone through healthy steps big and small, according to Akron General officials.

Developed specifically by incorporating survey input from community residents about what they expected from their health care provider, “My Health. My Life.” captures that people want from their health system a partner — an organization that listens, cares and guides its patients to optimum health, according to Akron General officials.

The multi-tier awareness campaign includes print (newspaper and magazine), local and cable TV, social media, radio, outdoor (digital and poster) and online components, which includes a website offering healthy living advice, healthful recipes and a video contest where the public can submit video clips of their own wellness journey and win prizes. The site address is www.akrongeneral.org/firststep.

“People throughout the area told us their needs. They need a health care system that listens closely to what they have to say and works collaboratively to help them develop personalized plans for their wellness,” said Thomas “Tim” Stover, M.D., president and CEO of the Akron General Health System. “Our new campaign revolves around education, empathy and collaboration and meeting the wellness needs of everyone at any age.”
