NEW YORK, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Flashpoint Medica, a full-service advertising and brand-development firm and member of the Omnicom Group (NYSE: OMC), was named Agency of the Year, Category III by Medical Advertising News at the publication's annual Manny Awards ceremony held April 17 in New York.

Distinguished by innovative thinking, powerful creative, and a collaborative approach to strategy development and problem solving, the three-year-old agency has rapidly established leadership in building high-science and specialty brands.

The agency provides a full range of services, including brand development, positioning, professional and direct-to-patient advertising, doctor-patient communications, promotional medical education, advocacy development, and strategic planning.

Flashpoint is led by managing partners and co-presidents Charlene Prounis, and Risa Bernstein, partner and chief operating officer Helen Appelbaum, and executive vice president and creative director Steve Frederick. The agency's three-partner business model allows daily senior-level operational involvement in all accounts.
