The TMA Anson Jones, MD, Awards honor outstanding health journalism, and we need your help to find the best stories of 2014. Maybe you’ve seen, heard, or read something that caught your attention on a new medical treatment, health disparities, obesity or other health concern, or the border crisis.
If so, nominate it for an Anson Jones award. TMA family (physicians, medical students, TMA Alliance members, and county medical societies) nominated six of the 21 winning entries in this year's Anson Jones competition. Award categories cover print, broadcast (television and radio), and online media. Any story from 2014 is eligible.
When you nominate a journalist, you recognize him or her for a job well done. Simply email your nomination: the reporter's name, name of article (if available), date of broadcast/publication, and the media outlet. Please try to include a URL.
TMA will send the reporter a postcard with a handwritten note. We’ll let the reporter know you nominated him or her and for which story or broadcast.
Visit the Anson Jones webpage for complete nomination details, contest rules, and categories. If you have questions, call Tammy Wishard, TMA outreach coordinator, at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1470 or (512) 370-1470, or email her.
