The National Press Foundation has chosen 20 journalists for in-depth training on public health.
Over four days, journalists will learn the connections between chronic illness and social determinants such as housing, food security, livable wages and environmental quality. They’ll also learn about the emergence of multi-sector partnerships; the role of innovation and technology in public health; the economic impact of health disparities; and how to find relevant data for stories.
The training will take place July 16-19 in Washington, D.C.
