EastMed Inc. has been awarded Progress Marketer of the Year for the launch of its flagship product - uresta™ Continence Care.

“We are delighted with this award and wish to express huge thanks to Progress for this kind of recognition,” said Dr. Scott Farrell founder and VP Medical of EastMed Inc.

“When we designed this product, we knew we had accomplished something special. But we couldn’t have done it without our key investors, Innovacorp, BDC and ACOA, our shareholders who’ve supported our business and marketing plans, and our strategic partners - Sperry Design, Modern Media, Time & Space Media, CM Communications and Egg Films - who helped us realize our marketing vision.”

Nominations for the award were reviewed by four judges and scored based on presentation of the issue, uniqueness, strategic execution, measurement of success and overall impression.
