Ruder Finn’s Christie Anbar Named to PRWeek’s Health Influencer 30

NEW YORK 11/02/2021 - Ruder Finn today announced that managing director Christie Anbar has been named to PRWeek’s Health Influencer 30. This list was chosen by the editors at PRWeek and features the top healthcare communications professionals.

Christie is an industry veteran who is passionate about harnessing the power of communications to improve the health and wellness of people. For more than 30 years, she has been partnering with clients to create insight-driven, strategic campaigns and powerful stories that change mindsets and change behaviors, and ultimately change health outcomes. From translating complex science and data, to elevating awareness and understanding, to addressing stigma and misinformation, to building community and support, Christie has positively influenced the patient journey across a multitude of diseases and medical conditions.

“I’m honored to be included on the Health Influencer 30 alongside such an impressive group of communicators,” Christie said. “The past two years has shown the world the critical importance of healthcare, especially innovation driven by new science, converging with advances in data and technology. At the same time, the pandemic also showed the pivotal role communications plays in leveraging new tools, social platforms, patient communities, and video in order to ensure scientific breakthroughs get to, and are embraced by, the people who need them, not just for COVID, but beyond.”

Ruder Finn CEO Kathy Bloomgarden stated, “As an agency, we are proud of our leadership in healthcare communications and pursuing ‘what’s next’ to transform how companies in the health space communicate with, educate, and advance truly engaging solutions to help people lead longer healthier lives. Given new attention on health and wellness, as well as being on the cusp of a new wave of scientific innovation in healthcare, I am glad that Christie and Ruder Finn can play an important role in informing patients, encouraging compliance, and bringing to light the breakthroughs we are experiencing.”

The Health Influencer 30 will be featured in PRWeek’s last print edition for 2021, which is devoted entirely to the burgeoning area of health PR and communications.
