We’re thrilled to announce that Tinnitus Today magazine and Conversations in Tinnitus podcast won four awards—two from EXCEL and two from Digital Health—which is a tremendous honor that underscores
the importance of sharing the voices of people with tinnitus, such as yourselves, and those of researchers determined to put an end to tinnitus. “We’re incredibly grateful to our contributors, editorial advisory board, design team, and others who contribute to making each issue and podcast a success,” said Torryn Brazell, CEO of the American Tinnitus Association and publisher of Tinnitus Today magazine. “Our mission, your stories, and the voices of many other people dedicated to communicating about tinnitus make a difference.” Awards are based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted audience, and overall quality.
The EXCEL Awards are the largest and most prestigious program recognizing excellence and leadership in association media, publishing, and communications. The Spring 2020 magazine issue Tinnitus in a Time of Chaos: Calming the Mind, which addressed the significance of mental health access for tinnitus, was awarded Gold for Single Topic Issue. Tinnitus Today magazine also walked away with Bronze for General Excellence for the three issues published in 2020. To read those issues, click here.
