Fahlgren Mortine’s integrated campaign, The Many Faces – and Many Myths – of Organ Donation, for the Ohio Department of Health’s Second Chance Trust Fund and Donate Life Ohio, is a finalist in the Public Sector Campaign of the Year category. Fahlgren Mortine developed an integrated campaign designed to bust common myths associated with organ, eye and tissue donation in order to encourage more Ohioans to register as donors.
