Gogek to Use Funding for Substance Abuse Research


The Society of Professional Journalists and the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation have selected Jim Gogek of The San Diego UnionTribune as the recipient of the 1999 Pulliam Editorial Fellowship for Editorial Writing.

The $40,000 editorial writing award was established to enhance the professional development of outstanding editorial writers. The award is administered by the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation, the educational arm of SPJ.

"He demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the nation's drug treatment and prevention programs, and he laid out an ambitious plan for inquiring into the effectiveness of these programs. We found particularly appealing his idea of sharing his research and writing over the World Wide Web."

Gogek just completed one of a dozen or so trips in which he will visit various cities to inspect treatment and prevention programs and study nonprofit organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Partnership for a Drug-Free America. He's also planning a survey of state- and federal-level alcohol and drug services to find out about the amount of money spent on the programs and how they re working. …
