ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - June 24, 2015) - Nucleus Medical Media is proud to announce that it has received the 2015 Silver Telly Award for its "Custom Animated Patient Education: Mitral Valve Prolapse" video. The Silver Telly is the highest accolade awarded by the Silver Telly Council. Entrants do not compete against each other, but instead are judged against a high standard of merit established by the Silver Telly Council.
The "Mitral Valve Prolapse" video was produced in collaboration with ShareWIK Media Group. It is a unique combination of medical animation and live video. The video features Atlanta-based cardiologist Dr. Randy Martin explaining mitral valve prolapse, a medical condition that can affect the heart and may require corrective surgery. In addition to winning the Silver Telly, the "Mitral Valve Prolapse" video also won an Award of Merit last year at the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) Salon.
Nucleus credits this win to the efforts of its hard working employees, including animators Stephen Boyd, Eric Small, and (former employee) Walid Aziz; writer Mike Gleason; and editor Mary Beth Clough. Equal credit goes to the team at ShareWIK, who filmed the live video. They include Allie Lemco, Christian Driver, Diana Keough, Joshua Schlabach, and Dr. Randolph Martin.
"Our team worked very hard on this project," said Mary Beth Clough, Nucleus's Editor-in-chief. "We are honored to receive this award."
In addition to the Silver award for "Mitral Valve Prolapse," Nucleus received Bronze Telly Awards for its "HIV and AIDS" and "Content Marketing for Healthcare: Breaking Down the Silo" animations.
