COM Outlook Earns Top Honors in AACOM Excellence in Communications Awards Program

In March, NSU’S Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine’s COM Outlook magazine captured the first-place prize in the best magazine category in the national American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) Excellence in Communications (EIC) Awards Program.

“Winning this award is a wonderful achievement,” said Scott Colton, B.A., APR, director of medical communications and public relations for the osteopathic medicine college and the Health Professions Division. “It takes a truly collaborative effort to create each issue of COM Outlook, which makes winning the award especially gratifying.”

Colton, who spearheads the magazine’s editorial content, credits the talented team from NSU’s Office of Publications and Creative Services for playing a major role in the magazine’s award-winning success. “It truly is a pleasure to work with such wonderful colleagues who complement the magazine’s journalistic strength with their artful mix of editing, design, and art direction.”

AACOM’s EIC Awards Program is designed to recognize the important role communications plays in advancing osteopathic medical education and the profession. It also seeks to inspire higher levels of performance among its members.
