In the U.S., midwives are a key part of improving maternity care – and healthcare overall – but our challenge is that too few people know this.  Strategic communications is our top priority for advancing our mission.  With creativity and careful use of our financial resources, JPA has been able to help us strategically isolate our key message and equip our members to be powerful ambassadors for midwifery.  The agency effectively engaged key audiences through targeted media relations, which went a long way to addressing our immediate needs.
Lorrie Kline Kaplan, Executive Director, American College of Nurse Midwives

The depth of JPA's understanding of the European patient advocacy community has been invaluable.  Their expertise has helped Bristol-Myers Squibb develop critical partnerships with patient advocates working to address the unmet needs of patients.
