In particular, Samaritan’s community magazine, Heart to Heart, continues to receive top-level recognition as well as consistent feedback from community members on how much they appreciate the locally produced health content.

“We are fortunate to have such a talented group of creative professionals in our organization,” said Julie Manning, vice president of marketing, public relations and community health promotion at Samaritan. “We are pleased to be recognized for public health messages that are important to fostering a healthy and thriving community."
