AHCJ-Healthier Beat Fellowships
AHCJ, with support from the Leona M. & Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, provides financial assistance to journalists who cover beats other than health who wish to attend AHCJ's annual conference.
Fellowships are open to full-time journalists who wish to attend AHCJ's annual conference because they are being asked to cover health angles on their nonhealth beats.
These fellowships are aimed at daily beat reporters whose chief assignment is covering environment, business, education or government and are not members of AHCJ. As more newsroom reporters discover they need to cover health angles on non-health beats, the value of understanding health concepts becomes clear.
If selected for a fellowship, you may be asked to write an AHCJ website blog post, take pictures or shoot video of a conference session.
