Recently, AHCJ’s principles were cited as a positive way to avoid conflicts of interest for health reporting in a paper published in BMJ. One of the possible conflicts of interest discussed in BMJ was sponsored awards offered to journalists, such as those cosponsored by Eli Lilly, Boehringer Ingelheim and Roche.
That’s just one more reason to enter AHCJ’s Awards for Excellence in Health Care Journalism. The awards were created by journalists for journalists and are not influenced or funded by commercial or special-interest groups. Get the recognition you deserve from a highly respected awards program.
Last year’s winners included stories about patient safety, mistreatment in mental hospitals, health care reform and much more.
