Good news dept:
Dear loyal GlassHospital readers–
GlassHospital was recently recognized by the National Society of Newspaper Columnists as a finalist for columnist of the year in the Online, Blog, and Multimedia Category with >100,000 readers. This is for work published on the world’s best health care site, NPR’s Shots blog [to which I attribute such high readership — you loyalists on this site are in much more select company].
I was awarded third place, behind a Reuters columnist who works to bring broader understanding of Islam to a large general readership, and a columnist from The Street who writes frequently to expose scams and complicated investment schemes that over-promise and under-deliver. Given all that’s going on in the news cycles of late, I think this makes perfect cosmic sense.
I do my best to share NPR work on this site to attract you over there, but if you’re interested in the columns for which I won the award, links to them are below.
- From August 2015 — Suicide: not a natural cause of death
- From April 2015 — How should we educate 21st century doctors?
- From September 2015 — For older folks, pruning back prescriptions can bring better health
Thanks for reading!
