NSU’s Dateline Health Selected as a Winner at the 33rd Annual Telly Awards

FT. LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. — The Telly Awards has named Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Dateline Health as an award winner in the 33rd Annual Telly Awards for its piece on spinal surgery options. With nearly 11,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.

Fred Lippman, R.Ph., Ed.D, Chancellor of NSU’s Health Professions Division, hosts NSU's Dateline Health

Dateline Health’s winning episode featured the South Florida Spine Clinic describing spinal surgery options and pain modulation. It included footage of a physician assessing a patient, reviewing radiographs, and a demonstration of a new pain modulator that’s threaded into the spine and controlled remotely by the patient as needed.

Hosted by Fred Lippman, R.Ph., Ed.D, Chancellor of NSU’s Health Professions Division, Dateline Health is a 30-minute NSU service program dedicated to promoting the community’s overall health and well-being. It covers a wide range of contemporary health care issues through interviews with health care experts, researchers, and policymakers.

It airs on Broward Education Communication Network (BECON), and is carried by COMCAST and AT&T U-verse cable providers, Direct TV and Dish Network satellite and over air signals seven days a week throughout South Florida, reaching millions of households in the community.

“We are very excited to be receiving our second Telly Award,” Lippman said. “This prestigious accolade validates the quality of Dateline Health’s programming and the impact we are making in the South Florida health care community.”

In 2008, Dateline Health was chosen as a Telly Award winner in the 29th Annual Telly Awards for excellence in the educational video/film category.

The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films.  Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, executive director of the Telly Awards.  “Nova Southeastern University’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”

For its 33rd season, The Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards.  In addition to recognition from the Silver Telly Council, the judging panel that selects the Telly Awards winners and the online community helps decide the People’s Telly Awards winners.

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals — each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council — judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents.  The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit.  Less than 10 percent of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly, our highest honor.  Approximately 25 percent of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
