I received word earlier this week that I won a Neal Award for Best Commentary (all 2018 winners), based on three submissions from my EMS1 column:
- What President Trump gets wrong about the opioid epidemic
- Don’t ask paramedics to decide if opioid overdose victims live or die
- It’s time to talk climate change and its effect on first responders
Last year I won in the Best Profile category. My second Neal award is a terrific individual honor. More importantly the recognition increases awareness of the opioid epidemic and challenges facing public safety professionals.
