Winners Announced for the 27th Annual NIHCM Awards
The 2021 NIHCM Awards in Journalism and Research recognize extraordinary work accomplished under extraordinary circumstances. This year’s journalism winners deployed stunning investigations, revelatory storytelling, and cutting-edge digital tools to show the impact of COVID-19 on America. The work informed policy and gave voice to factory workers, farmers, health care providers and many others whose lives were disrupted or lost during the pandemic.
Our research winner catalyzed change on a critical issue for health care consumers — surprise billing, revealing market failures and advancing legislation.
"In this 27th year of NIHCM supporting journalists and researchers, we were proud to invest more than $1 million through our Award and Grant programs and further our commitment to their important work. We commend our winners for stepping up to reveal the untold stories of the pandemic and continuing to do pioneering research," said Nancy Chockley, President and CEO of NIHCM.
