NPF Announces Fellows for Cancer Program
The National Press Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of 20 fellowships to explore the latest advances in cancer research and treatment. The fellows represent the range of print, online and broadcast news sources, and they come from markets around the U.S. Selected from a competitive pool, the journalists have a demonstrated interest in reporting on cancer issues.
The session will be held at NPF’s offices in Washington, D.C., from Jan. 17-20, 2016. Over those four days, NPF fellows will talk – on the record — with experts in cancer screening, treatment and survival; they will also explore immunotherapies and other new drugs, as well as the cost of care and end-of-life decisions. They’ll leave with a solid list of new sources, resources and story ideas.
The program is funded by an unrestricted educational grant from Bayer.
