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.

In this webinar, we’ll glean lessons and insights from a yearlong Los Angeles Times investigation into extreme heat. We’ll also identify gaps in state and federal tracking efforts, and outline policy changes that could help. Sign-up here!
