We won an award
We’re pretty chuffed here in the blog team. Last night this blog won the Association of Medical Research Charities annual science communication award, for best online research information.
The judges praised our “chatty style” and particularly liked our ‘ myth-busting ’ posts.
The whole competition was pretty stiff, and special mention is due to Breakthrough Breast Cancer, whose Breast Cancer: The Risk Factors leaflet deservedly won the overall award.
The other winners were:
Patient information leaflet Breakthrough Breast Cancer - Breast Cancer Risk Factors: The Facts
Patient and public involvement Multiple Sclerosis Society - MS Research Network
Research report for non-expert audience Research into Ageing - The Disconnected Mind
Science reportage in an annual report or review Parkinson’s Disease Society - Parkinson’s Disease Society of the UK Annual Report and Accounts 2007
