“NY MED” TV Series Receives Special Christopher Award

The Christopher Spirit Award celebrates individuals or projects that exemplify the Christopher motto, “It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” For two seasons, the ABC News docu-series “NY Med” has done exactly that. The show, whose first season won a Christopher Award in the TV category, focuses on New York Presbyterian Hospital’s Weill Cornell and Columbia campuses as well as Newark’s University Hospital. There, executive producer Terence Wrong and his team of producers and camera people act as invisible observers, providing a window into the perils, tensions, and inspiring moments of daily life in a hospital.

Accepting the Christopher Spirit Award for"NY Med" are senior series producer Monica DelaRosa, series producer Aysu Grodowski, supervising producer Erica Baumgart, series producer Andy Genovese,  and executive producer Terence Wrong.
