The National Academies of science and engineering and the National Institute of Medicine announced the winners of its 2013 communication awards. They were selected from approximately 300 print, broadcast, and online entries.
And the winners are:
David George Haskell for The Forest Unseen (Viking Penguin).
"…for his exquisite portrait of nature's universe, drawn from one tiny patch of forest."
Joanne Silberner, David Baron, and PRI's "The World" for "Cancer's Lonely Soldier," "Pink Ribbons to Haiti," "An Ounce of Prevention," and "The Infectious Connection."
"…for shining a light on the hidden toll cancer takes in impoverished nations, killing more people than HIV, malaria, and TB combined."
