What Your Gift Will Support

Advancing Journalism on the Twin Pandemics of COVID-19 and Systemic Racism

All of our programs and initiatives have been reconceived in 2020 to help journalists address the twin pandemics we confront today - COVID-19 and systemic racism.  

Fellowships

The Center for Health Journalism has trained more than 1,000 reporters in its in-person Fellowships, which include news partnerships, intensive training programs, mentoring and financial support. Working with the Center, Fellows produce major investigative and explanatory projects that have changed laws and policies across the country and won journalism honors. We train more than 60 journalists annually and partner with their outlets to have maximum impact – a graduate school class worth of reporters and editors each year whose Fellowship stories reach tens of millions. 

Engaged Journalism

Our  "engaged journalism" initiative transforms the journalism process, helping reporters be more equitable and inclusive and allowing community voices to shape the narrative. 

Online Community, Webinars and Commentary

Our online community's content at CenterforHealthJournalism.org reaches an influential audience that includes journalists, policymakers, clinicians and legislators. Our Health Matters series, with one-hour webinars, has reached close to 10,000 to date in 2020. 

Reporting Collaboratives and Impact Fund

The Center for Health Journalism’s Reporting Collaboratives bring multiple outlets together for maximum impact and reach – jointly defining and then leading projects that bring together reporters working in English and Spanish for print, broadcast and online audiences and partnering with outlets that collectively have audiences in the hundreds of thousands. Our Impact Funds spur impactful journalism on themes such as health disparities and the uninsured. 

The Center for Health Journalism at the USC Annenberg School of Journalism depends on generous donors to make our work possible. Our donors believe in our mission and support the independence of the Center’s work and the diversity of viewpoints expressed in content and programming. We are committed to transparency in every aspect of funding our organization and make public all donors who give $5,000 or more per year.

Announcements

This month marks the sober anniversary of the police killing of George Floyd, which ignited global protests and renewed efforts to reform or dismantle policing. In our next webinar, we’ll examine the price society pays for a criminal-legal system that disproportionately arrests, punishes and kills Black people. And we’ll look at how reporters can best cover this evolving story in original and powerful ways. Sign-up here!

As public health officials like to say, "COVID-19 isn't done with us." And journalists know that we're not done with COVID-19. Apply now for five days of stimulating discussions on the pandemic's disproportionate impact on people of color -- plus reporting and engagement grants of $2k-$10k and five months of mentoring while you work on an ambitious project.

Are you passionate about helping journalists understand and illuminate the social factors that contribute to health and health disparities at a time when COVID-19 has highlighted the costs of such inequities? Looking to play a big role in shaping journalism today in the United States? The USC Center for Health Journalism seeks an enterprising and experienced journalism leader for our new position of “Manager of Projects.”
