Public Health Today magazine editor nominated for major award
Alan Maryon-Davis, the editor of the Faculty of Public Health's quarterly magazine, Public Health Today, was one of the nominees for the Medical Journalists' Association (MJA) Editor of the Year award.
Congratulations to Catherine de Lange of the New Scientist who was the eventual winner in the category.
One of three nominees, Professor Maryon-Davis was also competing with Nigel Praities, the editor of GP magazine Pulse.
Professor Maryon-Davis, who is a past president of the Faculty of Public Health, said, "It was an honour to be nominated. We were up against some well-funded publications with very large circulations. It shows that Public Health Today really punches above its weight."
The winners of the prestigious MJA Awards were announced last night (23/6/16) at the Barber-Surgeon’s Hall in the City of London.
BBC newsreader Nicholas Owen was the master of ceremonies and music was provided by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
For the first time, the awards included a category of Mental Health Story of the Year, which was won by David Brown of BBC news who also went on to win the headline award for Outstanding Contribution to Medical Journalism, sponsored by the NHS Confederation.
