The Clark County Medical Society Alliance received the Social Media Award for Community Engagement in Las Vegas, Nevada at the AMAA’s National Conference in Chicago on June 10th. The 2017-2018 Board of Directors for CCMSA, led by co-president’s Alexia Crowley and Jessica Kartzinel, donated funds from their Annual Spring Fashion Show to improve UMC’s Pediatric Treatment room. The unveiling of the treatment room took place at UMC on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 when members of the community and the Clark County Medical Society Alliance toured the facility to see the improvements that will provide excellent treatment to patients and their families in the community.
“The most heartwarming comment came from one of the nurses who said that our improvements have changed the way they practice pediatric medicine at UMC,” quoted Jessica Kartzinel.
Alexia Crowley and Jessica Kartzinel, along with Jacqueline Nguyen-Lee and Cindy Choi, were in attendance at the AMAA National Conference where they accepted the award and made a speech to the AMAA members about social media and marketing and how it led to the $112,000 donation to UMC through their collaboration with Nevada Medical Center (NMC).
“Many of the American Medical Association Alliance members in attendance remarked that this has inspired them to do similar projects and utilize social media for their communities,” remarked Alexia Crowley.
