BBC News Team Receives Endocrine Society Award for Excellence in Science and Medical Journalism

San Diego, CA March 05, 2015

A team of BBC News journalists received the Endocrine Society’s annual Award for Excellence in Science and Medical Journalism, the Society announced today.

BBC News Online Health Editor James Gallagher, Medical Producer Rachael Buchanan and the BBC Visual Journalism team were honored at the Society’s 97th Annual Meeting & Expo in San Diego, CA, for the winning package, The Day of the Body Clock.”  The package included TV, radio and online coverage from May 13, 2014.

Established in 2008, the award was created to recognize outstanding reporting that enhances the public understanding of health issues pertaining to the field of endocrinology.

The BBC News team leveraged the news organization’s 24-hour nature to explore the way hormones influence the body’s daily rhythms. The journalists created an interactive body clock website, which shared information about hormones at different times of day. The website provided customized information based on the viewer’s time zone.

In addition, BBC News developed stories for its TV stations, radio stations and websites that delved into hormonal fluctuations at different times of day.

The Award for Excellence in Science and Medical Journalism consists of a presentation at the Society’s awards banquet, as well as travel and accommodations to attend the Society’s Annual Meeting. The meeting is taking place from March 5-8.
