Iowa Alumni Magazine receives writing honor

The University of Iowa Alumni Association's Iowa Alumni Magazine recently received a writing award in a competition that recognizes the best practices and communications of alumni and educational organizations in the Midwest.

Editor Tina Owen was honored for her article "Medical Advances," which explains how military medical techniques and knowledge can help save lives in times of war and peace. She earned a silver medal for "Excellence in Research/Science/Medical Writing" in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE)'s regional "Pride of CASE V 2007" competition.
