May 5-7, at the Poynter Institute
Covering Medicare is a three-day workshop aimed at fostering a deeper understanding of Medicare reform, economics, health-quality initiatives and the impact on local communities. Attendees will learn about the most pressing Medicare issues from industry experts, those on the front lines of change in the program and journalists covering the topic.
Sessions will include various presentation formats, such as Q&A discussions and panel forums. Journalists will leave each session with hardcopy and electronic takeaways that will include story ideas, source lists, Medicare fact sheets and resources. The attendees will feel more confident writing analytical articles on Medicare and the implications of the politics and policies surrounding it.
