Awards will be handed out in New York City at a ceremony in October 2009.

"Healthcare accounts for more than one-third of our nation's gross national product and has become one of the most visible sectors of advertising, promotion and creative design in the last few years, particularly on TV and online," said Karl Vontz, Director of Events, Marketing, Media & Visual Arts Group, The Nielson Company.
