HPRMS is a vibrant community of professionals from New York City and the surrounding region. The membership cuts across myriad health care communications roles and titles—from marketing to public relations to social/digital and creative.

Our programs are designed by our members for our members and aim to maximize networking and information sharing among colleagues.

Our roots go back to 1969, when a group of healthcare public relations and marketing executives created a forum to foster professional growth among colleagues within the field. The group has grown to nearly 300 members, but our mission to support professional development and the exchange of ideas remains.
