The MD+DI December 2011 isssue has been awarded a Maggie for the best Medical, Dental and Related Services trade publication by the Western Publishing Association.
Per the WPA's Web site: "One of WPA‘s primary objectives is to promote the pursuit of excellence among publishing professionals... WPA believes recognition is the best way to honor achievement. For more than fifty-eight years, WPA has bestowed awards of excellence to deserving individuals and companies whose work is deemed 'The Best in the West' in a wide variety of publishing categories."
Other finalists in the category included American Journal of Critical Care, September; Critical Care Nurse, April; Dimensions of Dental Hygiene, January; IVD Technology, Nov/Dec, and MedEsthetics, May/Jun.
MD+DI's May issue was also selected as a finalist for best cover.
The December issue is a product of the dedication of an extremely talented group of editors, artist, and designers. I'd list their names, but I'm sure I'd forget someone important.
Suffice it to say that, as a group, the team at MD+DI thanks you for your continued readership and support.
