Flu. Health disparities. Obesity. Concussions. These are just a few topics already making headlines in 2014. If you read or hear a great health news story, nominate it for the TMA Anson Jones, MD, Awards, which recognize excellence in health journalism in Texas. TMA has honored award-winning Texas journalists for more than 50 years.
Physicians, medical students, TMA Alliance chapters, and county medical societies now can nominate local print or broadcast journalists for an award.
Send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the reporter's name, date of broadcast/publication, and the media outlet. TMA will send a postcard to the reporter with a handwritten note alerting him or her of your nomination.
