AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance
 

LogoThe AHCJ Reporting Fellowships on Health Care Performance is a yearlong program allowing journalists to pursue a significant reporting project related to the U.S. health care system. It can be local, regional or national in scope, or a mix. Though not an exclusive requirement of your project proposal, this year’s review committee remains interested in projects focused on health equity. This might include racial disparities within a community, gaps in public health inclusion, unstable housing, insurance access, food insecurity, violence as a health issue, how health care institutions or systems are applying a racial equity lens to their policies and practices or otherwise addressing inequities or disparities, or other examinations of systemic problems that became so apparent over the past year.

Fellows pursue the projects with the support of their newsrooms or arranged outlets, which commit to publish or air the work. 

Deadline to apply: Nov. 8 at noon ET, 11 a.m. CT, 9 a.m. PT
