About Pia Christensen

Pia Christensen (@AHCJ_Pia) is the managing editor/online services for AHCJ. She manages the content and development of healthjournalism.org, coordinates AHCJ's social media efforts and edits and manages production of association guides, programs and newsletters.

Recently, AHCJ’s principles were cited as a positive way to avoid conflicts of interest for health reporting in a paper published in BMJ. One of the possible conflicts of interest discussed in BMJ was sponsored awards offered to journalists, such as those cosponsored by Eli Lilly, Boehringer Ingelheim and Roche.
