“LaToya’s Story” Sheds Light on the Power of Personal Advocacy and the Importance of Health Equity, Wins Two Telly Awards

NEW HAVEN, CT (June 10, 2024)Jumo Health, a global provider of age-appropriate, culturally relevant medical education resources, has produced a live-action video addressing health equity in clinical trials that received multiple Telly Awards. The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring video and television across all screens, with over 13,000 entries from some of the most prestigious advertising agencies,  production companies, and publishers around the world. The video, produced for a leading biotechnology client, won the Bronze award in two categories – Social Video – DEI: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and Social Video – Medical & Research.  

This award-winning video titled, “LaToya’s Story,” shares the inspiring story of a mom of three who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021. Her story, characterized by courage and resilience, begins with an unexpected text message that sets her journey in motion and inspires her to advocate not only for herself and her daughters, but for all women of color. The video highlights LaToya’s experiences throughout her treatment journey to raise awareness of breast cancer and educate others about the benefits of participating in clinical research.
