Membership with WHPRMS comes with several opportunities to recognize those healthcare communications professionals who you admire and feel are the best in their fields. Please explore the unique opportunities, their requirements, and start preparing your submissions today!

Leadership Recognition

Leadership Recognition is a program designed to reward members who excel in their profession. The program offers three tiers: Certification, Accreditation and Fellowship status. Fellows are best defined as professionals in healthcare marketing and public relations who demonstrate exceptional competence and ability in the areas of Leadership, Problem solving, Innovation and creativity, and Organizational impact.

Carol Scaife Memorial Scholarship

The Carol Scaife Memorial Scholarship award gives one student or recent graduate the opportunity to spend three days learning and networking with healthcare marketing and public relations professionals from across Wisconsin at the WHPRMS annual conference.

Communications Review

The Wisconsin Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society developed the Communications Review program in 1971 to recognize excellence and superior accomplishment in the practice of health care public relations and marketing. Communications Review was one of the first award programs of its kind in the country and today is widely recognized by health care communicators for its quality and credibility.

Professional Excellence Award

… is a great way to recognize a colleague who has earned the respect of others.

If there is a person you admire in the healthcare industry, if they have been your mentor, your confidant, your beacon in the fog, or perhaps it is just blatantly obvious they really know their stuff― Then nominate them for WHPRMS’ Professional Excellence Award before the end of August!

Only one individual is awarded this distinguished honor every year!

This person should be a leader inside and outside their organization.  They should be a WHPRMS member in good standing and a seasoned professional who has demonstrated and shared their knowledge, advancing the principles of communications, marketing and public relations within the healthcare industry.
