I'm thrilled to have been selected to receive a Dennis A. Hunt Health Journalism grant, and look forward to meeting my fellow fellows at the upcoming October conference. As a freelancer, this grant will, quite simply, enable me to do in depth reporting that I could not have otherwise. My project will examine the history of industrial contamination in a small California city, and a unique effort by federal and local officials to forge solutions. The work is slated to be published in the Christian Science Monitor, and a chain of bi-lingual, Hispanic-English newspapers.
