MDB to Lead National Non-Profit PR Efforts  

Quality of Life Plus (QL+) has selected MDB Communications to develop and launch a marketing communications program.  D.C.-based MDB, was selected after a competitive review involving multiple agencies. The firm will provide research, strategy, public relations and social media services. 

Through the Quality of Life Plus Program, today more than 230 students, at 19 universities across the country, are working with disabled veterans. These STEM students meet with injured veterans who need an assistive device to help them navigate their world and achieve a higher quality of life. After discussing the needs of the veteran, the students – as part of their senior capstone projects – design and build the needed device.

While many of us recognize and honor our veterans in many ways, these students create life transforming, assistive technology for our country’s wounded heroes to help improve their quality of life. Beyond the benefit to American heroes, there is incredible value in developing the next generation of engineering-centric students gain valuable experience and skills, preparing them for their careers.

“Quality of Life Plus is on an upward trajectory and we look forward to working with MDB to advance our unique purpose and story,” said QL+ Executive Director Mark Robbins. “Continuing to serve our nation’s veterans and first responders while tapping into the mind trust of our country’s university STEM students is an exciting mission and reflects our unwavering commitment to those who have served our country.”
