"The People vs. The Pandemic," is a special series by KOB-TV (Albuquerque) reporters Colton Shone and Nathan O'Neal, with support from the USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism’s 2020 National Fellowship. The series shares stories of tragedy and resilience from the Navajo Nation, one of the first and hardest hit communities during the pandemic.

COVID-19 has made every journalist a health reporter, whether their usual beat is crime, education or county government.  Our 2021 California Fellowship will make anyone who attends a better health reporter -- and give you a reporting grant of $2,000-$10,000 and five months of mentoring while you work on an ambitious project. Deadline to apply: March 1.

In our next webinar, we’ll analyze Biden’s COVID-19 strategy in the first 100 days — and the huge obstacles the new federal effort must confront. We’ll also look at how Biden plans to address the economic devastation wrought by the pandemic, with a focus on women and vulnerable families. Sign-up here!
