Graduate wins medical journalism award
A science graduate from the University of Sheffield has won a major award from the Medical Journalists’ Association.
Alex Matthews-King, who works at GPs’ magazine Pulse, won the award for story of the year at the MJA’s Summer Awards.
He studied zoology in Animal and Plant Sciences before completing the Faculty of Science’s MSc Science Communication course in 2013.
Judges said Alex’s winning story was “one of the few truly balanced pieces… representing both sides… but skilfully playing one off against the other.”
