GAMC Wins National Aegis Award
Glendale Adventist Medical Center’s Heart and Vascular Institute has won a 2006 Aegis Award for a 17 minute motivational video, "A Little More Time... What's It Worth to You." The Aegis Awards are the video industry's premier competition for peer recognition of outstanding video productions and non-network TV commercials.

"A Little More Time... What's It Worth to You" was honored in the "Training / Education" category for its outstanding production quality by a distinguished panel of judges representing industry professionals from around the country. The video was created as part of the Heart and Vascular Institute’s Cardiovascular Population Health Screening Program. The screening program has demonstrated a high success rate for identifying community residents who are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease. About 85% of the program participants reported serious cardiac-related symptoms and have yet to be seen by a physician. The video is intended for those high-risk participants who are non-compliant and to motivate them to seek medical care and treatment. Because of the video, compliance increased from 5% to 95%.

The video was produced and directed by Jeff Blyth of Mei Guan Xi, Inc.
