The Victoria Advocate recently received state and national recognition for its health reporting.

The Texas Medical Association on Thursday presented an award for online/mixed media to the paper for work Erica Rodriguez, Drew Stewart, CJ Castillo and Robert Zavala did on "A Father's Strength," a series about Crossroads residents afflicted with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

The medical association also presented health reporter J.R. Ortega an award for his article, "Love will never forget: Patients aren't only ones who live with Alzheimer's; caregivers do, as well."

The Advocate also was named a national finalist for the Associated Press Managing Editors association's Online Convergence award for "A Father's Strength."
