The “Beyond the Battlefield” series, which aired in July 2015, looked at how post-9/11 military veterans are faring in Michigan. The series featured interviews, feature reports, online videos and a public engagement event to examine issues including veteran’s medical care, employment, housing and long-term health impacts from their military service.

Since 1972, the Clarion Awards have honored excellence in more than 100 categories across all areas of communications, including advertising and marketing, magazines, newspapers, online media, photography, public relations, radio and television.  The Association for Women in Communications (AWC) is a professional organization that champions the advancement of women across all communications disciplines by recognizing excellence, promoting leadership and positioning its members at the forefront of the evolving communications era. The 2016 Clarion Awards will be presented at the AWC National Conference, September 17-19 in Dallas.
