Rosen Group celebrated its 40th anniversary with a gala at Sound Lounge Mixing Studios in New York City’s Flatiron District. After starting her career at Washington, DC public affairs agency John Adams Associates, Lori Rosen launched the firm, which has been located in NYC ever since, in 1984. Rosen Group has represented a broad range of industry groups, with a particular focus on media clients, including both launches and titles such as The Atlantic, Wine Spectator, Cigar Aficionado, Smithsonian Magazine, Inc., Fast Company, Reader’s Digest, Cooking Light, Health, Prevention, Outside, Eating Well, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and PEOPLE. The firm has also represented automotive clients and professional associations. Having seamlessly adapted to a work-from-home model, the firm now operates in a hybrid setup, with a team of 16 professionals. While the firm’s services now include content creation, bylined pieces and social media strategies, it still places a big priority on earned media. “There is nothing more satisfying than seeing my client interviewed by a national or local media outlet,” said Rosen.

Following on the celebration of Juneteenth (June 19), the 4-5 p.m. event will discuss a range of topics, including why it’s important to address health disparities; advancements and opportunities for racial equity in patient care; key issues related to health disparities looking ahead and recommendations for improving health inequities.
