TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2015) - BlueRush Media Group Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BTV) and Johns Hopkins announced that the Managing Cancer at Work program has received the prestigious Gold Award at the Digital Health awards.
The Digital Health Awards recognize high-quality digital health resources for consumers and health professionals. The Digital Health Awards are an extension of the National Health Information Awards, the largest program of its kind in the United States.
"The Managing Cancer at Work program has already helped many employees and managers better cope with a cancer diagnosis and related work issues. We are very proud of the program, and look forward to the increased awareness this type of award can generate" stated BlueRush's Executive Vice-President Len Smofsky.
The program is currently being piloted at Johns Hopkins and Pitney Bowes (Stamford Connecticut).

It will be available as a web-based platform, or with the option of a Johns Hopkins one-on-one nurse navigation service.
