‘Brain Wars’ Series Recognized for Outstanding Reporting

Columbia University’s Dart Center for Journalism & Trauma has selected Brain Wars: How the Military Is Failing Its Wounded as one of the recipients of its annual award for excellence in coverage of trauma. The collaborative reporting effort by ProPublica’s T. Christian Miller and NPR’s Daniel Zwerdling investigated the impact of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, which has affected more than 115,000 soldiers and has since been considered the “signature wound” of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Judges called Brain Wars a “major piece of investigative journalism notable for its scope, depth and analysis.” They also applauded Miller and Zwerdling for “fulfilling journalism’s promise as a pillar of democracy” and “fundamentally changing the way the public and policymakers understand TBI.” Congratulations, T. and Daniel.
