Boasting time! As the editor of Stanford Medicine magazine, I'm happy to announce that Jonathan Rabinovitz and Tracie White have won writing awards for stories that ran in our pages last year. The awards come from the American Association of Medical Colleges, which presented them April 14.
Jonathan snagged the highest honor in the general staff writing category for “Transformers,” which examined the role teaching hospitals could play in the metamorphosis of American medicine. The story was published in the Summer 2010 issue of the magazine.
Tracie won for her first-hand account of the efforts of one Haitian hospital to cope with the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. The story, “Valley of hope,” appeared in the same issue.
An article in today's Inside Stanford Medicine shares some of the judges' comments.
