Evening Sun medical writer Sue Miller wins state medical society's media competition

October 01, 1991

Evening Sun reporter Sue Miller has won first place in the annual Media Awards Program for Excellence in Medical Journalism sponsored by state medical society.

Miller, the newspaper's medical writer, won the daily newspaper category for an in-depth Page 1 story, "AIDS: 10 years later." The story, which ran June 5, 1991, both looked back at the growing epidemic of acquired immune deficiency syndrome cases and ahead to what America and Maryland face in the future regarding the devastating disease.

The society, formally known as the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland, said Miller's "multifaceted" story was the "most outstanding entry in the daily newspaper category" and copies of the article are being distributed to society members.

The purpose of the Med-Chi's competition is to honor journalism that "contributes to a better public understanding of medicine and health in Maryland."

Other first-place winners included:

Hollis Paschen, Columbia Flier, non-daily newspapers and magazine category, for "The Wounded Healer," a story about a chaplain at Howard County General Hospital; and Merrie Street, WPOC-FM, in the radio category for "The Cancer Nobody Talks About," a story on the effect of prostate cancer on Marylanders.
