The second part of my occasional series on health disparities affecting Native Americans in the Portland, Ore., area ran in today's Sunday Oregonian. This part focuses on the war Native Americans are waging against diabetes in Portland and across Indian Country. This project is produced with help from a grant from the Dennis A. Hunt Fund for Health Journalism administered by the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships, a program of the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communiication & Journalism.

Announcements

The nation’s overdose epidemic has entered a devastating new phase. Drugs laced with fentanyl and even more poisonous synthetics have flooded the streets, as the crisis spreads well beyond the rural, largely white communities that initially drew attention. The death rate is escalating twice as fast among Black people than among white people. This webinar will give journalists deep insights, fresh story ideas and practical tips for covering an epidemic that killed more than 107,000 people in the U.S. last year.
