Epilepsy Review up for award
Epilepsy Society’s flagship magazine Epilepsy Review has been shortlisted for an award in the prestigious Guild of Health Writers 2012 Writing Awards.
The Guild which represents many of Britain’s leading health writers and journalists in print, broadcast and online said there had been a record number of entries of an extremely high standard.
Epilepsy Review’s article featuring world champion hurdler Dai Greene has been shortlisted in the 2012 Olympic special category for the best sports health/fitness programme or feature.
Inspiring people with epilepsy
Said Nicola Swanborough, editor of Epilepsy Review: ‘Many people find it difficult to talk about their epilepsy fearing that others may judge them or that seizures may impact on their employment prospects or hold them back in life.
‘Dai Greene is one of most our promising British athletes in the 2012 Olympics and he just happens to have epilepsy too. His decision to talk openly about his seizures and how he has overcome them to be crowned European and Commonwealth champion in the 400m hurdles, is an inspiration to anyone dealing with a diagnosis of epilepsy.
‘It is good to see such a positive story recognised in the Guild of Health Writers Awards.’
Award winners will be announced at a gala evening in London on 29 March.
