Mosaic writer wins journalism award

imgresWe're thrilled to announce that Patrick Strudwick has won an award from the Medical Journalists' Association for his Mosaic feature 'One virus, four lives: the reality of being HIV positive'.

Patrick, who won the Science Explained category in the 2015 MJA Winter Awards, dedicated the award to Ian Gurnhill, who died several weeks after Patrick interviewed him for the story.

Congratulations also to Catherine de Lange, whose Mosaic feature 'Brazil's billion-dollar gym experiment' was shortlisted for the Best profile of a health of medical figure category at the MJAs.

These recognitions add to a number of successes Mosaic has enjoyed in its first year. Our stories have been republished in a variety of places, and articles have been translated into French, Hungarian, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.

In 2014, ‘Arrested Development’ and ‘DIY Diagnosis’ were listed among the best reads of 2014 by critics at Longreads, Longform and Digg.
