CHPA 2021 U.S. Self-Care Marketing Awards

The CHPA Educational Foundation held its 6th Annual Gala last week, with 60 companies represented and 230 people attending the hybrid event in person and virtually. The gala is held each year to recognize the critical vision, mission, and consumer-focused work of the CHPA Educational Foundation, whose mission is to help people live happier, healthier lives through responsible self-care. This year’s program honored and recognized the strategic innovation and marketing expertise of CHPA member companies in both the over-the-counter (OTC) medicine and dietary supplement industries.

With more than 50 entries received, a judging panel of nine independent experts narrowed the field to 21 finalists whose work was honored at the event. The awards were presented by CHPA Educational Foundation Board Members Elizabeth Karvonen of the Emerson Group, and Yvette Baez from Google, Inc. The volunteer awards judging panel included representatives from CVS Health, UWG, Salutem, Might & Matter, FCB Health NY, Cardinal Points Consulting, PinneyAssociates, LifeStyles Healthcare, and Wunderman Thompson.
