Now that the Supreme Court has issued a decision on health care reform, how do you localize and cover it for your readers, listeners and viewers?
To assist reporters across the country who will need to localize the decision and what it means for their states and local communities, AHCJ will host a one-hour online roundtable of experts to offer you suggestions on stories you can pursue right away and in the weeks ahead. We will help you identify stories that make sense for you as a local or regional reporter.
The event will take place at noon ET on June 29, the day after the court releases its ruling.
