NEW YORK – March 1, 2018 – Linkwell Health, a leading content engagement company serving healthcare organizations, today announced the appointment of Kathleen Ellmore to its Consumer Marketing Advisory Board.

The power of words is unmeasurable,” said Ellmore. “Linkwell is poised to reimagine how health plans connect and engage with their members by creating content that strikes an emotional connection, compels them to action and inspires members to own their health. I’m excited to join the board at a time when the industry is ready to embrace the consumer marketing methodologies that manufacturers and retailers have practiced for decades.”
