Reeling in some prize catches
In her Editor's Note in the Fall 2010 issue of Dartmouth Medicine, "Prize catches," editor Dana Cook Grossman wrote about some recent good news from Dartmouth Medicine magazine and the Dartmouth medical enterprise.
The most notable piece of news she shared was about the appointment of a new dean: Dr. Wiley "Chip" Souba, who comes to DMS on October 1, 2010, from the deanship of Ohio State's medical school.

She also wrote about several honors recently accorded members of the magazine's staff: three writing awards by the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) and a prestigious science journalism fellowship at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL).
Associate editor Jen Durgin received both the Will Solimene Award for Excellence in Medical Communication and the Neil Duane Award for Distinction from AMWA's New England chapter, and managing editor Amos Esty won a Solimene Award.
In addition, Amos Esty spent 10 days in May 2010 at the MBL in Woods Hole, Mass., as a Logan Science Journalism Biomedical Fellow. He went to sea in a trawler to help collect the sea urchins that many MBL labs use as a model organism, then worked alongside scientists who study the immune system of sea urchins. While there, he also contributed to a blog kept by participants in the fellowship.
