What people said about Health Journalism 2019

I always develop great sources and story ideas at the conferences. And I truly appreciate the fellowship and all the effort AHCJ staff puts in to organizing this annual event. Baltimore was a great location.

  • Jim Mulder, Post-Standard/

You guys do a GREAT job. This conference never fails to excite and inspire journalists with new information, new story leads, new approaches to the craft. Plus the fun stuff, all of it in venues with a lot to offer nearby. Seamless production of this conference.

  • David Gorn, independent public media journalist

I always find great information at the AHCJ conference. It fuels story ideas for me at the local level, while expanding my knowledge in areas I have not done any investigation. I believe the range of speakers and topics, as well as the organization of it all, is terrific.

  • Chris Bolt, news and public affairs director, WAER Public Media, Syracuse, N.Y.

I appreciated that the panels were filled with experts from the field and not just journalists because it provided an expert look at what providers saw as gaps in services. As I have worked on stories since the conference, I’ve continually referenced notes I jotted down during sessions or peaked back at the conference program for advice on who the best expert to interview might be.

  • Nicole Hayden, health reporter, Desert Sun/USA Today, Palm Springs

AHCJ is a strong and growing organization; I'm grateful for the fellowships and the opportunity to network with fellow journalists from across the country.

  • Melinda Hemmelgarn, freelance writer and radio host (KOPN/Pacifica Radio).

I can't think of a better and more useful conference to attend than AHCJ. I've heard from others I've met that other conferences by other organizations have not been as comprehensive or as useful. I think that's also been my experience. I found the workshops very enlightening.
