A number of AHCJ members volunteered to write about Health Journalism 2010 for AHCJ.
Many others used information they learned at the conference to write stories for their own publications.
We’re in the process of compiling those reports, as well as photos and video from the conference. Visit our conference news page to read more about the event.
