AAOS Now Wins ASHPE Gold Award

AAOS Now has received a Gold Award for Best Commentary from the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE). The award recognizes “A Fat Nation Needs to Be in Motion,” by editor-in-chief S. Terry Canale, MD, which first appeared in the May 2013 issue of AAOS Now.

The ASHPE recognizes editorial excellence and achievement in the field of healthcare publishing. The annual awards competition provides an opportunity for editors to measure their efforts against the very best the healthcare sector has to offer.

This is the second award that AAOS Now has received; the first—a Silver Award for Best News Story—recognized coverage of the orthopaedic response to the Haiti earthquake. Orthopaedic Surgeons Bring Healing to Haiti
