and Health Inequities, April 4-6, 2013, in Washington, D.C. Proposals are needed
for 90-minute breakout sessions and sponsored workshops.
This conference, focused on health disparities in communities of color, is designed
to provide print, broadcast and digital journalists with tools to effectively report on
the impact of health care reform and health policy on underserved communities.
Topics addressed at the Media Institute have included the social determinants of
health, creative community solutions to health care access and prevention, the
Affordable Care Act, HIV/AIDS in the black community, mental health, childhood
obesity, and infant mortality.
Presenters must have demonstrated expertise in their subject areas and come
prepared to teach and challenge conference attendees in interactive discussions.
Sessions should equip journalists and media professionals with skills and information
that will increase their relevance in the newsroom and in health education.
Each proposal will be reviewed by NABJ's Media Institute Committee.
