Berens wins Nieman award for adult homes series

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.

The Harvard-based Nieman Foundation for Journalism has selected AHCJ member and Seattle Times reporter Michael Berens for the $20,000 2010 Worth Bingham Prize for Investigative Journalism. Berens earned the prize for his “Seniors for Sale” series, which focused on Washington State’s booming adult home industry and the dangers of the regulatory gray area it often seems to fall into.

We’ve featured quite a bit of the series here on Covering Health, and here are a few posts to help you catch up on Berens’ award-winning work:
