I am happy to report that African health issues are getting some national recognition. The National Association of Black Journalists awarded the Tanzania Travels blog a “Salute to Excellence Award” in the category of New Media-Best Commentary last weekend.
There were a number of prominent media players also being honored that night including retired CNN anchor Bernard Shaw, NBC president Steve Capus, and former Los Angeles Times editor Dean Baquet. Hopefully, the timing of this award coinciding with their honors will spark continued dialogue in the media of dire health issues in Africa and other developing countries.
Thank you for your support!
