- Modern Healthcare Publisher and Vice President Fawn Lopez last Friday received the first-ever Gertrude Crain Award for her achievements in business-to-business publishing. The award recognizes women in the business-to-business media and information industry who embody the mission of excellence, service and success of the Software and Information Industry Association Women's Leadership and Networking Council. The award is given by the SIIA's Association of Business Information & Media Companies.
“I'm deeply honored and humbled by this prestigious recognition,” Lopez said. “No one receives an award such as this without the support of others. Thank you to the Modern Healthcare team for their commitment and support.”
Lopez has served as publisher of Modern Healthcare since February 2005. She came to the publication as associate publisher in October 2001 after spending two years at Crain's Chicago Business, one of its sister publications.
The award is named for Gertrude Crain, chairman of Crain Communications for 23 years. Crain is the parent company of Modern Healthcare.
- Indiana Gov. Mike Pence overrode state law and his own anti-drug policies last Thursday to authorize a short-term needle-exchange program. The authorization is designed to help contain HIV infections in a rural county where more than six dozen cases have been reported, all tied to intravenous drug use. Pence issued an executive order declaring a public-health emergency in Scott County, an economically depressed area about 30 miles north of Louisville, Ky.
