EMN Wins APEX, ASHPE,
and Clarion Awards!
Emergency Medicine News won two awards in the 2013 APEX competition, including a Grand Award for best news magazine. EMN was one of only a handful of the 2,400 entries to receive a Grand Award. This is the fourth consecutive year that EMN has won that honor.
Grand Awards are given for outstanding quality in 12 major categories, including editorial content and graphic design. "Who knew that hospital emergency department care '…accounts for only two to four percent of total U.S. medical expenditures.'?” the APEX judges said about EMN. “That and many other insights — plus in-depth, focused features — await in this well researched and invitingly written news magazine. It has a clean, readable design, but the accent is — as it should be — on the editorial content, and it shows."
An APEX Award of Excellence was also given to Ravi Morchi, MD, for exceptional health and medical writing for his column, Diagnosis Deconstructed. Dr. Morchi also won a 2013 Clarion Award for the best informational/non-opinion column. The prestigious Clarion Awards are given for excellence in communications by the Association for Women in Communications. Past winners include the Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Sports Illustrated, BBC Global News, HBO, Voice of America, Good Housekeeping, and O, the Oprah Magazine. Dr. Morchi is the director of the Medical Screening Examination program at Harbor UCLA Medical Center and an assistant professor of emergency medicine at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine.
