MSAA’s Magazine, The Motivator, Honored by the 31st Annual APEX Awards

The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) is proud to announce that we have received two awards from the APEX Awards for Publication Excellence!

MSAA has been presented with the 2019 Grand Award for Excellence in Writing for the cover story in the Winter/Spring 2018 edition of The Motivator, “Finding Direction When Newly Diagnosed.” This cover story explains the basics about multiple sclerosis, as well as treatment options, details on some of the more challenging symptoms, employment issues, and government programs. This article also serves as a good reference for people to share with relatives and friends who may be unfamiliar with MS. The APEX Grand Award was presented to only 100 of the 1,200 entrants in this year’s competition.

Additionally, MSAA received an Award of Excellence in the Magazines, Journals & Tabloids category for the Summer/Fall 2018 edition of The Motivator. This edition of the magazine includes the cover story, “Revealing the Mysteries behind Magnetic Resonance Imaging,” which provides an extensive overview of the MRI for individuals with MS – how it works, what it shows, the challenges it presents, and how the MRI is used to monitor disease activity.

According to Communications Concepts, Inc., the APEX Awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content, and the ability to achieve overall communications excellence.
