Washington, D.C.— Apply now or nominate a colleague for Families USA’s sixth annual National Health Policy Journalist Training for Communities of Color beginning September 25 in New Orleans. Whether in online media, print, radio or television, editors and news directors can apply or nominate staff for our intensive, two-day session that draws journalists from across the country, especially those serving communities of color.
If you would benefit from in-depth training in health care policy or wish to nominate a colleague who would be especially interested in learning about health policy issues impacting communities of color, our National Health Policy Journalist Training for Communities of Color will offer a wealth of information for both promising new journalists and seasoned professionals looking to increase their knowledge in health policy. Participation in the training is highly competitive, so editors and news directors should nominate reporters, producers, anchors, and other editorial staff as soon as possible. Interested editors and news directors are welcome to apply as well.
To nominate someone send your nominee’s name, outlet, and contact information to Airrion Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org or Bryan Fisher at email@example.com. We look forward to reviewing applications from your talented colleagues.
Additionally, for a limited time, journalists applying before July 17 will receive a 50 percent discount on the normal $75 cost of registration to the training. The rolling application process is competitive and qualified journalists should submit their applications here as soon as possible.
