Sign up for our Nov. 8 Webinar: Covering Health Reform After the Election

Picture of Michelle Levander

Healthcare reform has become one of the most divisive issues of the 2012 campaign season. Mitt Romney repeatedly has vowed to repeal "Obamacare" on his first day in office while President Barack Obama staunchly defends the Affordable Care Act, his signature domestic policy achievement, as simply "the right thing to do."  

This week, Reporting on Health is bringing together an expert panel to help you understand and report on one of the most important national and local post-election stories. Our speakers will share insights, story ideas and predictions on the road ahead for healthcare in America. 

We hope you can join us.

When: Thursday, Nov. 8, 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EDT) to 11 a.m. PDT (2 p.m. EDT)

Domestic violence affects tens of millions of Americans every year. Yet media outlets mostly treat incidents as "cops" items, if they cover them at all, as opposed to treating domestic violence as a public health problem. Our free two-day symposium will help journalists understand the root causes and promising prevention, intervention and treatment approaches.  Plus participants will be able to apply for grants to report California-focused projects.

Are you passionate about helping journalists understand and illuminate the social factors that contribute to health and health disparities at a time when COVID-19 has highlighted the costs of such inequities? Looking to play a big role in shaping journalism today in the United States? The USC Center for Health Journalism seeks an enterprising and experienced journalism leader for our new position of “Manager of Projects.”
