Laurels for the Magazine
Dartmouth Medicine was the recent recipient of two national awards in the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Awards for Excellence Competition.
A feature by Associate Editor Laura Stephenson Carter titled "Puzzling Over Medical Mysteries" received the AAMC's highest writing award in the General Staff Writing category the Robert G. Fenley Award of Excellence. An inside look at the Department of Medicine's weekly M&M, or morbidity and mortality conference, it was the cover article in the Summer 2003 issue. The AAMC judges called the story "a fascinating look at physicians working together to figure out a vexing case." This is the second award for the article, which won a Will Solimene Award for Excellence a few months ago from the New England chapter of the American Medical Writers Association.
In addition, the magazine as a whole received an Award of Distinction in the AAMC's External Audience Periodicals category. The judges commented that "it's interesting to see that such a variety of content is put together so professionally for the small cost." Both awards will be presented at the AAMC's annual meeting in Boston in November. A.S.
