Interview with Mark Boidman, PJ Solomon
Karen Newmark, Executive Director of the Point of Care Communication Council (PoC3), sits down with Mark Boidman, Head of Media & Tech Services at PJ Solomon to get his perspective on the impact that COVID-19 has had on the global media industry at large, his thoughts on what the future might hold and why the role of point of care (POC) is more important than ever. Mark reinforces POC as an enduring channel for driving awareness and education, including the dissemination of accurate timely COVID-19 information in partnership with the CDC, stating “there is no better place than the POC setting because it’s an authoritative setting, it’s a trustworthy setting, and it’s a setting where consumers are going to look for information and trust it and listen to it.”
