About Andrew Van Dam

Andrew Van Dam of The Wall Street Journal previously worked at the AHCJ offices while earning his master’s degree at the Missouri School of Journalism.

Interns and residents at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx are attempting to formally organize in response to what they  believe are poor, unacceptable working conditions.

As part of their effort, they have launched “Examining St. Barnabas,” a site that solicits community input, rounds up (mostly unfavorable) coverage about the hospital and adds a sort of disgruntled-employee spin to St. Barnabas-related issues. It’s an interesting nexus of special interest and community service, as well as a window into the workings of a sometimes troubled hospital. The effort also has a presence on Twitter as @examinebarnabas.

    This story is a great reminder that every brand/company is on social media whether they want to be or not. Also yet another interesting case of the power of citizen-journalism…low barrier to entries, able to reach a large number of readers.
