I'm thrilled to announce that White Coat, Black Art has been selected as winner in the category 'Excellence in Radio Reporting - in depth' for the 2011 Canadian Medical Association Media Awards for Heath Reporting.
We won for our two part series 'Will to Die', a penetrating look at assisted suicide from the point of view of Nagui Morcos, an extraordinarily courageous man with Huntington's disease (HD). In his thought-provoking interview, Nagui reflects on the impacting of watching his own father die of HD, and how that has informed his desire to end his own life at a time of his own choosing, some time in the future.
If you haven't listened to the shows, click on the links below. I would like to take this opportunity to thank producer Kent Hoffman and senior producer Jean Kim for their amazing efforts to bring this show to the air. And I especially want to thank Nagui Morcos for telling his story. And, congratulations to all of the 2011 CMA Media Award winners.
