TRANSFORMING HEALTH wins regional award for best Website
witf.org, | 04.24.14
WITF’s transforminghealth.org received an Edward R. Murrow Award as the top website in the Region in the Small Market Radio category. The win was one of six honors received by WITF public media in 2014.
The website award was based on a sampling of the homepage content as well as four submitted features.
A guide for understanding the changes that are taking place in Pennsylvania's healthcare system, how to access health insurance, and how to make the most of your plan to ensure positive health outcomes for you and your family.
The Transforming Health team offered this infographic as a tool to help educate parents about the problems and the solutions surrounding childhood obesity. The stats are shocking, but there is hope. Parents can empower kids to make healthy choices by modeling a healthy lifestyle themselves.
Super-utilizers are 5% of the patients who account for more than half of all healthcare costs. These patients have a range of complex medical problems that prevent them from getting the appropriate care they need. Now, there's hope.
The Transforming Health "Success Stories” wall is another avenue for people to visually browse and access success stories that have been shared with this project. This unique interactive tool helps drive traffic to the site. It is also shareable via social media buttons at the top of the wall. We continue to add stories to the website and wall by pulling from Public Insight Network (PIN) query contributions and from email contributions.
The regional award covers Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey and all radio stations in markets 51 and smaller in those states.
“WITF might not accomplish this level of award-winning journalism without the support of our members and community connections. Our reporters put their time and talent to work every day to ensure our financial supporters recognize the value of their funding," WITF's CEO Kathleen Pavelko said. "These awards are really a testament to a partnership of quality, in-depth journalism along with a devoted membership and corporate partners.”
"This year's regional Murrows validate the strategic commitments WITF has made in quality in-depth journalism and for community engagement, as with the Transforming Health multimedia initiative," said WITF's Senior Vice President of Content Cara Williams Fry said. "We are grateful that our work on behalf of our region has been so honored."
Winners of the RTDNA regional awards are automatically entered in the national Edward R. Murrow Awards competition, which will be announced in June. National awards will be presented at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City on October 14.
