From the UC Berkeley Public Health Library: Resources for Reporting on Public Health

Picture of Michael Sholinbeck

A few months ago, I conducted a seminar on using library resources for public health reporting. It was presented to students in the UC Berkeley School of Journalism's Reporting on Public Health class.

I created a web guide for the session which I hope will be of use to folks beyond UC Berkeley. Please note that several of the web resources listed are restricted to UC Berkeley students; these are indicated by a note in the annotation. If you are affliated with a university, you may have access to some of these resources; contact your librarian for details.

Take a look at the web guide; let me know what you think.

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.
