About

Mill Pond

Mill Pond Communications is a patient advocacy agency. Our advocates work with our creative and technology partners to provide educational and communications campaigns that meet patients wherever they are—physically, and speak to patients where they are—emotionally and intellectually.

D2 Creative offers us a dedicated team of writers, animators, creative directors, producers, artists, and sound effects and video editors. They also provide us with access to subject matter experts, as needed.

D2 Creative has a long history working in the healthcare space. Regularly exposed to the latest scientific breakthroughs, they are always looking for novel ways to present science in accessible formats that resonate with both professional and lay audiences. 

Their work is an inspiration to our patient advocates, who are anxious to share D2’s unique slant on science and medicine with other patients.

Recent Work

Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) asked us to create 14 ILLUMINATIONS for their new clinical trials site to help dispel myths and allay fears about cancer clinical trials.

The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation used ILLUMINATIONS to help patients and providers understand how important it is to profile tumors—because mutations matter.
