For Bayer, LifeLearn developed the “Bayer Parasite Scene Investigation” as a spinoff to the popular television show, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. It was designed to help vet techs identify, diagnose, and treat the most common parasites of pets.
The Nestle Purina Veterinary Diets Challenge was developed by LifeLearn as a computerized game for industry trade show attendees to use while learning about pet nutrition.
For Novaris, LifeLearn developed a team-based activity called “It’s a Pets Life” designed to educate vets and their staff about the prevention and treatment of parasites in pets.
Leah Stephenson, chief creative officer at LifeLearn, remarked, “Every educational program, meeting, and event we produce is geared toward enhancing the education of our clients’ target audiences to achieve corporate goals, and we’re thrilled to receive this recognition for our creative, results-oriented work.”
