PJ’s Lin-Nam Wang takes home Avicenna media award for second year running
Lin-Nam Wang, The Pharmaceutical Journal’s senior contributions editor, was named senior reporter of the year for the second year running at the Avicenna media awards, held at The Royal Society in London today (31 January 2014).
Presenting the award, Avicenna chief executive officer Salim Jetha commended Miss Wang for her writing on a broad range of issues, from clinical topics and revalidation to counterfeit medicines and global pharmacy.
Speaking at the awards ceremony, Mr Jetha asked what is happening to appreciation in society today. He argued that a blame culture has been created, with “how to complain” notices in surgeries and other healthcare premises. Instead, he said, he would like to see such notices revised to say “compliments, comments and complaints”. He challenged the pharmacy press to run a campaign for pharmacists to send in just two “success stories” each. “That way, we’ll have a powerful dossier,” he said.
Former editor of The Journal, Douglas Simpson, was presented with a lifetime achievement award at the event.
