Advertising opportunities

Why advertise with AHCJ?

As you know, the news media can place health issues on the public’s agenda and catalyze action at the local, state and national levels. Indeed, the ubiquitous nature of the news media makes it a powerful tool for directing attention to specific issues. What’s more important: the media attract the attention of specific opinion leaders, including politicians, government regulators, community leaders and corporate executives, among others.

  • Reach your target market – more than 1,500 journalists who cover medical research, the business of health care, health policy and consumer issues for the news industry’s top outlets. And, our membership is growing every day! Spread your reach to all forms of the news media – newspapers, television and radio stations, consumer newsletters and magazines, online publications, trade publications and books. We have the best and most up-to-date list of journalists on this beat.
  • Demonstrate your willingness to help journalists get the story right. Your ad can provide visibility for your organization, a policy position or your availability as a resource for journalists on this beat.
  • Improve journalists’ understanding of key issues. One survey of newspaper reporters in five Midwestern states showed that nearly 85 percent said they had no specific training for reporting on health and health care. Your ad can point to resources that will help journalists to better understand critical and complex health issues.
  • Gain credibility and influence with journalists. Associate with a highly respected organization and the only one of its kind for journalists on this beat. Unlike the American Medical Writers Association, AHCJ has no members in public relations. Unlike the National Association of Science Writers, AHCJ has members focused only on health and health care, not the physical sciences.
  • Take advantage of the bargain rates. At our low, low ad rates, your organization will get a lot of bang for its buck. You’ll reach the reporters and editors who are most likely to cover issues of interest to you.

All advertising is subject to AHCJ’s fundraising policy.

Mailing labels

AHCJ rents member mailing labels a limited number of times each year to nonprofit organizations that meet our fundraising guidelines. Mailing labels can be helpful to an organization that has ready-made brochures with too much information to fit into a newsletter advertisement. AHCJ must see the proposed mailing before it can be approved. Each payment allows one-time use of these addresses. They can not be resold, shared or entered into a database. AHCJ does not share e-mail addresses or phone numbers of members.

  • Entire list is $1,175.

Contact us at 573-884-5606 or info@healthjournalism.org to order mailing lists.

Conference and workshop programs

Reach health journalists through a professionally designed program distributed to everyone who attends our events.

  • More than 30 organizations advertised in the last annual conference program. Don’t miss the opportunity to reach hundreds of journalists gathered for several days of sessions.
