May I brag for a moment? The medical school's communication office recently received five honors, including two gold awards, from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. Among the big winners was our magazine:
For the second consecutive year, the office received the top honor for staff writing in Stanford Medicine magazine. "Stanford Medicine's entry was far and above the strongest of any we reviewed," the CASE judges wrote. "There was a compelling and interesting mix of stories that were well-researched and creatively written."
In particular, the judges cited the story "Transition point," by Tracie White, about one woman's experience with gender-reassignment surgery. "A fascinating read. A nice fluctuation between the patient's own story and interesting facts about the process," the judges wrote.
