AMI – Professional Award of Merit

Transthyretin amyloid cardiomyopathy, or ATTR-CM, is an under-recognized cause of heart failure in older adults. Our client needed to create materials that could be used for internal team training, as well as in conversations with physicians. This animation was developed in conjunction with an augmented reality application to educate on ATTR-CM and improve knowledge about this disease. We’re thrilled it has won an award at the annual Association of Medical Illustrators Salon! You can learn more about this project & view the animation on the AMI Salon site
