Free webinar: Covering health care

All reporting beats have learning curves, but covering health care is an especially tough assignment. It’s a fast-moving beat riddled with complexity. That’s true whether you’re covering a local hospital merger, rising premiums, or the latest twist in the effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

But veteran reporters have proven strategies for sniffing out stories and staying ahead of the news. Join the Center for Health Journalism for a new Health Matters webinar on Thursday, Sept. 6, at 10 a.m. Pacific.

The webinar will share lessons and tips from two of the country’s leading health policy reporters: Daniel Chang, who covers health care for the Miami Herald; and Victoria Colliver, a California-based health care reporter for Politico Pro.

The webinar will give fellow reporters a behind-the-scenes look at how they track news developments, ferret out original stories and stay on top of their beat every day. Whether you work at a small weekly or a major daily, this webinar will offer ideas, strategies and tips you can put to use right away.
