EVANSTON -- Qualified Remodeler magazine senior editor Kyle Clapham recently received a journalism award from the National Association of Real Estate Editors for his story "Opioid Crisis: Painful Reality."

Chapman netted a silver award for Best Residential Trade Magazine Story at NAREE's 70th annual Journalism Awards held earlier this month. His story explains why construction workers are particularly at risk for opioid abuse, and why so many workers are reluctant to seek help.

"Using available state and federal statistics, including the Centers for Disease Control, and interviews with a wide range of industry experts, Clapham details in clear, concise manner the toll that opioid abuse has taken on the construction industry," the award judging committee wrote in bestowing the honor.

Evanston-based Qualified Remodeler, is a leading national residential construction trade magazine.
