Free rural health journalism workshop June 3 in St. Louis

Health journalists are invited to attend a free workshop in St. Louis, Mo., aimed at finding the "untold rural health stories," on June 3.

The workshop will provide journalists with resources and story ideas. "You'll hear about how surroundings and behavior are molding rural health issues," said Jeff Porter, special projects director of the Association of Health Care Journalists. "The disconnection between food and health in the heartland, how Medicare decisions made in Washington can lead to stories in your own community, the changing landscape of the health workforce, and the growing problem of the abuse of legal drugs."

Reporters can expect panel discussions led by award-winning journalists with world-class experts.

The workshop will be held at the Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel. To view a schedule of the day's events, click here. AHCJ has a limited amount of travel assistance available. The event is free, but AHCJ membership is required.
