We have the top journalists on this beat.

  • Take advantage of bargain rates. At our 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 health-related issues. Options include classified postings, print display ads and linked online display ads.

Who can advertise with AHCJ?

The Association of Health Care Journalists, and its Center for Excellence in Health Care Journalism, seeks to minimize the possibility and appearance of inappropriate influence from outside parties. The association imposes strict limitations on the sources of its funding and embraces transparency, independence and sustainability when evaluating whether to accept funds from outside parties.

While AHCJ has a more detailed fundraising policy, generally advertising is accepted from the following:

  • Media companies; media foundations; medical journals;

  • Nonprofit, nonpartisan foundations not controlled by commercial firms;

  • Nonpartisan research organizations;

  • Publicly funded agencies, universities and hospitals;

  • Nonprofit colleges/universities;

  • Individual nonprofit academic medical centers that are members of AAMC or major teaching affiliates of AACOM member schools;

  • Other educational institutions with an interest in improving the quality of health care journalism consistent with the mission of AHCJ.

  • Companies or groups that have no specific interest in healthcare but which sell or supply products or services that journalists may consider useful in their work. (Examples include computers, notepads, tablets, automobile rentals, hotels, airlines and freelance agencies.)

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 cannot be resold, shared or entered into a database. AHCJ does not share email addresses or phone numbers of members.

  • Entire list, one-time use:  $2,500

All advertising is subject to AHCJ’s fundraising policy.
