As one clear sign of how we want to help improve the flow of health care information – not just criticize things we see that are communicated inadequately – we've built a section of HealthNewsReview.org called The Toolkit. We plan to continue to add to the Toolkit as time permits and we welcome your nominations for topics you'd like to see addressed.

We think that journalists and consumers can learn from reading the collection of primers, backgrounders, and links that we've gathered there.

The Tips For Understanding Studies include:

A collection of other resources for evaluating claims & analyzing news coverage

Our list of independent experts – which, by the way, will soon be updated – is meant to help journalists who may not know where to find non-conflicted sources for their stories.

We welcome your feedback, suggestions, and nominations for new tools we can build.

The pandemic has thrown into brutal relief the extent to which the U.S. health care system produces worse outcomes for patients of color. And yet there has been scant focus on one of the biggest drivers of structural racism in health care: How doctors and hospitals are paid. In this webinar, we’ll highlight the ways in which the health care system’s focus on money and good grades is shortchanging the health of communities of color. Sign-up here!

U.S. children and teens have struggled with increasing rates of depression, anxiety and suicidal behavior for much of the past decade. Join us as we explore the systemic causes and policy failures that have accelerated the crisis and its inequitable impact, as well as promising community-driven approaches and evidence-based practices. The webinar will provide fresh ideas for reporting on the mental health of youth and investigating the systems and services. Sign-up here!
