Provide a brief synopsis of the story or stories, including any significant findings.

The Wall Street Journal Health Blog includes important news and special reports, as well as concise news reports and analysis to enterprise reporting. The blog regularly covers consumer news, policy, business and medicine. Most weekdays the blog features seven or eight items.

Judges' comments: The Health Blog is a high-volume, multi-author news reporting platform. Its informal tone and precise reportage create a sense that the authors are leveling with readers, explaining what the news "really" means in a way print reporting often does not.
