EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., August 29, 2005 – MWW Group (www.mww.com), one of the nation’s top ten public relations firms, today introduced ScienceDialogueTM, a proprietary strategic process to communicate scientific research to consumers and specialized constituencies such as medical experts. MWW’s industry-leading Nutritionals and Functional Foods Practice introduced ScienceDialogueTM, a tool that carefully considers the research process and findings as well as a client’s business objectives and target demographics to formulate an effective communications strategy and key messages designed for optimal results.
“Credible research deserves a disciplined communications approach that employs effective tactics and messages to educate consumer constituencies and key influencers. MWW created ScienceDialogueTM to ensure that our clients realize maximum communications benefit from their research investment,” said Michael W. Kempner, president and CEO of MWW Group. “Whether clients are seeking to market their research to targeted consumer groups, such as arthritis sufferers, or specialized medical constituencies, such as dietitians or orthopedic surgeons, ScienceDialogueTM cultivates advocates and educates target audiences through the right communications vehicles, with the right message at the right time.”
MWW Group is currently utilizing ScienceDialogueTM in several research assignments. The agency is promoting several studies for Natural Health Science, including new research that shows how French maritime pine bark extract, Pycnogenol®, can help reduce leg and ankle swelling during air travel. MWW Group was also tapped by Acatris to communicate research on flax lignans. The agency has earned extensive news coverage of these studies, including features in major consumer magazines, television health segments and bylines in medical community publications. MWW is also creating online resources and arranging speaking engagements at trade shows and congresses.
The ScienceDialogueTM process will be implemented by MWW’s scientific marketing specialists, medical writers, brand positioning experts and consumer education professionals.
