Reporting Health Stories from any Beat

These presentations are from the California Chicano News Media Association's Job Opportunities Conference, Oct. 15 & 16, in Los Angeles. With all the cutbacks at media outlets, many reporters are being asked to cover multiple beats. The panelists provided tips on how to find those stories and how to write them without being an expert.
