Top of the Morning: Lisa Aliferis Edition

Top of the Morning: Lisa Aliferis Edition

Picture of Lisa Aliferis

Here we check in with prominent health journalists and experts to see what sites, newsletters and social media feeds they turn to first every morning. This week, we caught up with Lisa Aliferis, senior communications officer for California Health Care Foundation’s High Value Care Team, and former health editor of KQED’s State of Health. Here are her top morning reads:

I can’t say I read these all daily, but many days, I read the following:

Politico Pulse: M-F newsletter on health policy. It gives me the big picture of major ongoing health stories (Zika, Obamacare, etc) as well as the nitty gritty advancement of important bills making their way (or not) through Congress – and it’s all done in a highly engaging style.

I just signed up for the new California Today from the New York Times which gives me a big picture of statewide news. Bonus: a fast read.

California Healthline: It’s a daily digest of California health news and politics. This was a daily must-read when I edited the health blog at KQED.

Rough & Tumble: I check the health section almost daily (plus scroll through the rest to check what’s up in California)
