2018 Urban Health Journalism Workshop

10/18/18 - 10/19/18     New York, NY


How where we live affects our health

Come get the tools to better investigate, understand and relate the health of your city.

Sessions this year will focus on how urban life affects our health and the health of our readers, viewers and listeners. They will explore the impact of violence on health, using health data for local stories, trends in urban aging and childhood, the opioid crisis and more.

Chirlane McCray, First Lady of New York City, will talk about urban initiatives for mental health reform
