Evaluation of the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships

Investigator: Claire Brindis, DrPH
Sponsor: California Endowment

Location(s): United States


 Each year, the Endowment trains competitively selected professional journalists from leading print, broadcast, ethnic and online media in two journalism institutes, one for California and one for journalists from around the nation. During each institute, we teach best journalistic practices and multi-media storytelling and help journalists explore the root causes of health and ill health, including health care access, environment, employment, education, violence and access to healthy food. For up to a year afterwards, senior journalists guide Fellows as they complete ambitious explanatory or investigative Fellowship projects, many of which have won journalism prizes.
