For more than two decades, the MAHF has recognized individuals who have made a lasting mark on healthcare advertising by inducting them into the Hall of Fame. The Future Famers Awards started in 2012 recognizing those industry veterans who are determined to leave their mark on the healthcare marketing industry. To be eligible for the award, recipients should be approximately 30 years of age or younger and have already made a significant contribution within healthcare marketing. In addition, recipients must show a solid commitment to community service, either at a local or national level.

Ms. Mangold, from the New York office, has been with Ogilvy Health for more than three years, and Mr. McKenna, based out of the Parsippany location, has been with the network since April 2018. Both employees were nominated by Ogilvy Health as prime examples of young healthcare marketing professionals who are making a positive impact in medical communications.

The MAHF was founded in 1996 to preserve the history of the medical advertising profession and honor its founders. Its membership includes nearly 40 leading healthcare advertising agencies and medical publishers. For information on the MAHF, visit its website at www.mahf.com
