A Website with a Heart

Written by Alexa Frank, Marketing Intern

Chicagoland Cardiac Connections
One of the many capabilities we offer at The Weinstein Organization includes website development. And this summer I have had the opportunity to help build an event website for Chicagoland Cardiac Connections. They are hosting an event at the Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. This site promotes a day that “connects” a community of young patients who live with a Pacemaker or an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD).

In efforts to promote this event, we’ve developed a website that informs the public about their community, details of the event, and allows people to sign up for the event. There is also the capability to donate towards the group.

In the next phase of development, we are adding extra features so the site can live beyond the day of the event and act as a place for people to continuously connect, share resources, post photos, and interact through a community message board. Future events are being planned too!

Of all the different types of clients we work with, this client has been most rewarding. The group donating their time and effort to develop a community for these young patients are the patients themselves, their families and cardiologist Dr. Greg Webster and his team. We’ve also donating a vast majority of our services to develop the site and additional collateral materials to promote the event.

Working with the members of Chicagoland Cardiac Connections (CCC) and Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago has been such a gratifying experience. Our entire staff eagerly looks forward to CCC Day this September 8th and wishes the best for the entire CCC community!
