Duke Magazine, published by the alumni affairs office, has been named one of the nation's top university magazines for 2008, garnering bronze and silver medals in a national competition sponsored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

The magazine earned a bronze medal in the category of College and University General Interest Magazines. The award recognizes editorial content, quality of writing, visual impact, and service to the mission of the institution.

In the Best Articles of the Year competition, senior writer Bridget Booher '82, A.M. '92 won a silver medal for her profile of Duke neurosurgeon John Sampson, "Mind Over Matter," the cover story for the July-August 2008 issue. The story discussed Sampson's pioneering approach to treating glioblastoma multiforme, the most common and deadliest type of brain cancer.
