Emily Hanford accepts the duPont award on behalf of the North Carolina Public Radio team in 2004 for the Poverty Series.Previous North Carolina Voices series have explored issues such as education, unemployment, war and poverty. The series won many national and regional awards, including the prestigious Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Broadcast News Award.For more information about North Carolina Voices please contact News Director Brent Wolfe at 919-445-9150 or bwolfe@wunc.org.North Carolina Voices Topics:Civil WarMental Health DisorderGlobal Health Comes HomeTomorrow's EnergyRural SchoolsGlobal Health ConnectionsDiagnosing Health Care
