AHCJ partners with NAJA to launch 3-part webinar series


AHCJ is proud to announce that it is partnering with the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) to launch a webinar series, Health Care Reporting 101, designed to help build health care reporting fundamentals.

The first webinar in the three-part series will be held at 2 p.m. CST on Thursday, March 24. The one-hour webinar, “Health equity: For whom does the system work?” will focus on how the U.S. health care system works for people or doesn’t, depending on where people live and other social determinants of health, according to a NAJA release.

AHCJ Health Equity and Health Policy Core Topic leaders Margarita Martín-Hidalgo Birnbaum and Joseph Burns will lead the discussion via Zoom. Katherine Reed, AHCJ’s interim executive director and director of education and content, will moderate the Q&A.

Participants are asked to register for the free event. After registering, attendees will receive a confirmation email with details about how to join.

The second and thirds webinars in the series will be held in April and include:

  • Webinar #2:  How to understand medical studies and decide whether they’re worth reporting; how clinical trials are conducted and what to look for; and how to find expert sources and accurate definitions.
  • Webinar #3: The top 10 things you need to know to report accurately and responsibly on health care and how to make the most of AHCJ’s resources.

Stay tuned on AHCJ’s website and social media platforms for the dates of the remaining webinars.

Funding for this partnership is provided by the Commonwealth Fund.

All webinar recordings will be available on NAJA’s website and YouTube channel.
