KU radio production captures two gold medals

LAWRENCE -- The "Medicine Chest" is now stocked with two gold medals.

The University of Kansas radio program, which is broadcast on ten stations across the state, has been awarded gold medals for radio scriptwriting and multimedia production in the District VI awards competition of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. CASE is an international education association serving professionals in alumni relations, communications and philanthropy.

The weekly 90-second radio show is designed to make pharmacy facts more accessible to the public in an entertaining format. "Medicine Chest" is available free of charge to radio stations.

CASE judges praised the series for providing content that is "educational and interesting."

"Medicine Chest" is a joint production of the Office of University Relations, the Higuchi Biosciences Center, the KU Center for Research Inc., and the Drug Information Center at the KU Medical Center. Christy Russell, of Lee's Summit, Mo., narrates the program.

The program is broadcast in Lawrence on KLWN-AM and KANU-FM, in Great Bend on KVGB-AM, in Goodland on KLOE-AM, in Hays on KAYS-AM and KHAZ-FM, in Iola on KIKS-FM, in McPherson on KNGL-AM, and in Phillipsburg on KKAN-AM and KQMA-FM.
