The Journalism Honor Roll recognizes professional health journalists for their writing on cancer control, and to inspire citizen scientists, students, and other non-professional journalists to learn how to disseminate cancer control information to the public in order to break down barriers. If you are unsure if a piece of journalism qualifies, please submit it, and we will contact you.
Examples of publications that can be recognized include international, national, and local media outlets, as well as community newsletters, church bulletins, YouTube videos, blogs, etc.
We will use the following list of criteria to confirm that the publication(s) you submit helped us to promote our mission of reducing the burden of cancer in a variety of ways. Here are some examples that would make a publication eligible:
- The publication has a focus on cancer and shares valuable cancer-related information with the public
- The publication helps to raise the public’s cancer literacy
- The publication helps to raise the public’s understanding of cancer research and/or clinical trials
- The publication helps to promote awareness of a clinical trial that is recruiting participants
- The publication showcases a cancer hero
- The publication promotes a cancer-related event
You can tell us why you think this journalist belongs on our AACE Journalism Honor Roll when you complete and submit a Nomination Form. Everyone who meets our educational objectives will be added to the list in reverse chronological order from when they were awarded the honor.
Each journalist approved by the AACE Education Committee will receive a Certificate of Recognition for their important contribution to cancer education and learn the name(s) of the person(s) who submitted their nomination (within approximately 4-6 weeks after their nomination). You can submit more than one nomination during the course of the year.
