The Call of Duty Endowment took home the 2022 PR News Platinum Award in the Media Relations: Non-Profit Campaign category last night, at a ceremony in New York City, New York. This was the Endowment’s 7th national award for the #CODEMedicalHeroes campaign.


Where the jobs aren’t. A dangerous situation in U.S. hospitals and clinics.

Dan Goldenberg, Vice President Corporate Social Responsibility & ESG Reporting at Activision Blizzard, was on hand to receive the award. Reflecting on the effort and the campaign, Goldenberg said, “We dedicate this award to the untapped potential of our military combat medics, hospital corpsmen and medical technicians.” Adding, “Half of them want to work in the civilian healthcare industry but can’t get jobs—an unconscionable waste.” Speaking about what the recognition means, Goldenberg said, “This is the most awards that any Call of Duty Endowment Campaign has won, and it is no accident. The cause is just and important, and the partnership from the Call of Duty franchise and the Activision Blizzard team is incomparable!”
