Connaught Medal for Excellence in Health Research Journalism
(now Aventis Pasteur Medal of Excellence in Health Research Journalism)
This year's award went to Ann Rees, a reporter at The Province
for her series of articles on attention deficit disorder, "Boys
will be boys - that's why we've got them popping pills". The
article featured detailed statistics on the number of students that
were being medicated with the drug in cities and towns throughout
the province, suggesting that the level of Riatlin use in some centres
far exceeds the actual occurrence of ADD within the local population.
Ms. Reeves received a commemorative medal and a $1,500 bursary,
as well as having her name inscribed on a permanent plaque at The
Canadian Medical Hall of Fame in London, Ontario.
