NEW YORK, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Flashpoint Medica, a full-service healthcare advertising agency and member of the Omnicom Group (NYSE: OMC), has launched Flashlight Interactive, a new business unit devoted to digital communications.

Flashlight Interactive will offer a variety of programs and capabilities, including video production, animation, gaming, interactive training tools, and thought leader development programs. "Our clients are thrilled with this addition," said Charlene Prounis, managing partner of Flashpoint Medica.
