Lewis A. Miller, founder of the Global Alliance for Medical Education and the Alliance for Continuing Medical Education, and chairman, Intermedica Inc., located in Darien, Conn., was named the 2002 winner of the Crain Award for lifetime editorial achievement. Presented at a luncheon ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria, New York City, in March, the annual award is given by American Business Media.

“Lewis A. Miller, editorial director and co-founder of Dowden Health Media, is an editorial innovator who, in his 42-year career, has changed the field of medical journalism,” said Carroll V. Dowden, president of Dowden Health Media, Montvale, N.J., and past chairman of ABM.

Under Miller's leadership, a new genre of clinical medical journals was born, said Dowden. “For the first time, editorial content was based on the needs of physician-readers for practical, relevant, clinical information.”
