National Public Radio documentary The DNA Files received the
fourth annual "Peabody/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Award for Excellence in
Health and Medical Reporting."
The five-part radio series on genetic science was produced by SoundVision and
hosted by John Hockenberry.
The series is being repackaged as a how-to on producing health and medical
programming, and it will be distributed free to TV and radio stations to encourage
their own medical-reporting efforts.
