At A+D Health, a division of Arrivals + Departures, we want to give people the opportunity to live a healthier life. This is why we have embarked on building a healthcare practice to tackle some of the toughest challenges in healthcare advertising today. A+D Health is a boutique creative agency focused on healthcare with a truly patient‑centric approach. Creating a personal environment with smaller, experienced teams allows us for more effective communication and the opportunity for sharing skills and ideas from all levels.
We pride ourselves on being a part of our client’s everyday business and being an extension of their team. Our teams are structured efficiently based on our client’s specific needs and level of qualifications. From specialty care in Oncology and Rare Diseases, to Not‑for‑Profits, to consumer brands in the healthcare category. We will take the multi‑faceted experience that we can provide and apply it to everything we do for your business.
This is our promise to you!
Daniel is a Partner at the agency and has been with A+D since 2009. He first became immersed in the healthcare world in December of 2011 when his daughter Hailey was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at just 17‑months old. The connection deepened further in 2015 when his second daughter Jessica was born with jejunal atresia resulting in short bowel syndrome. After Jessica spent 141 days at SickKids from birth he was inspired to apply the agency’s resources and expertise to help Canadians live healthier lives. His family are ambassadors for multiple organizations including SickKids Hospital, JDRF, Starlight Foundation and Chai Lifeline Canada. He is a member of the Family Advisory Committee for the Group for Improvement of Intestinal Function andTreatment (GIFT) program at SickKids.
