DMG Media is leading the initiative in collaboration with the media industry, corporate Ireland and Ireland’s sporting, media, and entertainment celebrities. A multimedia campaign developed for the project will run across print, digital, OOH, TV, and Radio to generate awareness of the new publication celebrating Ireland’s Nurses and Midwives and to support sales of The PULSE.
“Nurses have been the constant link between families separated from loved ones by the covid restrictions,” said Paul Henderson, CEO, DMG Media. “They have been answering phones, relaying messages, a caring touch and delivering a word of hope. Their constant professional care has bridged medicine and humanity for so many. With The Pulse, we get to share their stories and acknowledge their endless commitment. With the Pulse we all get to say, ‘Thank you’ in a real way by going out to your local shop and buying a copy for just €2.”
DMG Media is reminding all buyers to stay within their 5km, always wear a face mask, and abide by all public health guidelines when buying The PULSE on 20 March and onwards.
