SU2C to receive second CLIO Healthcare Award

November 04, 2015

Katie Couric serves as one of Stand Up To Cancer's key spokespersons. Long-known as one of the country's premiere broadcast journalists, Couric began her cancer advocacy work after losing her husband, Jay Monahan, to the disease. In 2000, she established the National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance with the Entertainment Industry Foundation. Colon cancer screening rates increased and the death rate from the disease fell in the ensuing years.

Two executives represent the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) on the Stand Up leadership team. Senior Vice President Kathleen Lobb runs EIF's New York office and manages the SU2C Public Relations effort. As EIF's President and CEO, Lisa Paulsen has ultimate responsibility for the stewardship of SU2C funds, and is a key member of SU2C's fundraising group.

Also heavily involved in fundraising are Sherry Lansing, founder and current chair of the Sherry Lansing Foundation who stepped down from her longtime role as Paramount's CEO to focus on philanthropy, and Ellen Ziffren, a former talent agency executive who co-founded Rob Reiner's I Am Your Child Foundation and helped grow other entertainment industry-based non-profit groups.

The CLIO Healthcare Awards will be held Friday, November 12th, 2010, 7pm to 11pm at Good Units in the Hudson Hotel, 356 W. 58th Street, in New York City.  Over 1000 entries from 235 agencies in 27 countries have been reviewed for creative excellence and innovation in advertising and communications in the healthcare industry, with the shortlist posted online at www.cliohealthcare.
