Plano, TX, July 1, 2015 – The Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery isn’t just an expert in helping people win the battle against obesity, it’s also highly skilled in reaching patients and inspiring them to achieve healthy, lasting weight loss. For its outstanding marketing efforts, the clinic was named one of the honorees in the 2015 Aster Awards.

“We are dedicated to an aggressive marketing campaign to make sure people who struggle with weight know that help is available to them,” says Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country.  “While our primary goal is to educate patients and ensure they know their options, we also know it’s an emotional and life changing decision. The advertising campaign that was recognized features actual post-procedure patients in everyday moments enjoying things they couldn’t prior to surgery. Rather than focusing on the weight lost, the campaign focuses on the improved quality of life achieved through weight loss. It is an extreme honor to have our marketing efforts recognized by this national program.”

Hosted by Marketing Healthcare Today Magazine, the Aster Awards is one of the largest national competitions of its kind for the medical industry. The 2015 awards included nearly 3,000 entries from all over the United States, along with several foreign countries. The program is designed to recognize outstanding healthcare professionals for excellence in their advertising and marketing efforts.

“The creativity of this year’s participating healthcare marketing professionals exceeded our expectations,” says Melinda Lucas, Aster Awards program coordinator. “The 2015 Aster Awards program contained some of the best and most creative advertising in the world.”

Winners of the Aster Awards will be posted on the program’s website at and also published in Marketing Healthcare Today, a national healthcare marketing magazine.

“It is a great honor to see our patient outreach efforts are having an impact locally while making a splash on the national scene in industry circles,” says Dr. Nicholson.
