The inaugural Clio Health Innovators List “aims to celebrate individuals working behind the scenes who have contributed to the creative success of their organization.

"As medical director at Neon, Carlos Garcia puts an elevated spin on healthcare marketing. Past projects combined medical, technology and a splash of gaming. Garcia brings this unique view of healthcare advertising to Neon.

His distinctive view of patient decision making led to the creation of TheLastImSorry.com, a resource for anyone experiencing domestic abuse.

When he is not deep diving into medical journals to help clients improve patient treatments, Garcia is host of the Dr. Nobody Podcast, where he doles out tools for success and interviews thought leaders across various industries." - Muse by Clio

"Mai Kaneda has a passion to help pharmaceutical and healthcare brands make society healthier. She listens intently to doctors and patients, comments on social media, and has casual conversations with colleagues—these are the seeds to grow innovative and creative ideas that benefit all involved. 

In her five years with McCann Health Japan, Mai has created strong relationships with clients and generated memorable work, including "6 Minutes Together," which showcased new ways for music to help patients diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. She also worked on "TRAIN'ing," a smartphone app for East Japan Railway Company that gives commuters ideal exercises that can be done en route to work." - Muse by Clio

"As project manager at McCann Health London, Cristina Stan considers herself the glue that keeps all aspects of an assignment together. She strives to support her team so they can seamlessly produce outstanding work. To her, innovation is connecting with creativity to open new ways of thinking, unblocking old patterns of thinking and collaborating as a team to problem solve. 

Every work day varies for Cristina; she might implement a new digital platform one day and work late to help her team on a creative presentation another day. Recently, she managed the campaign launch for the  Acid Survivors Trust International." - Muse by Clio
