NABJ Media Institute Presents Sixth Annual

Conference on Health, Health Policy and Health Inequities

 


(Washington, DC) February 28, 2014 – The National Association of Black Journalists will host its Sixth Annual NABJ Media Institute on Health: Health Policy and Health Inequities, April 10-12, 2014 at the Barbara Jordan Conference Center at The Kaiser Family Foundation, 1330 G Street in Washington, D.C.

 

This year's topics include a primer on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), discussion of the ACA from the perspectives of medical providers, mobile health applications, black women’s health, caregiving and minority representation in clinical trials.

“This is an ideal opportunity for journalists and media professionals to learn more about health and consumer issues that they can use to empower their audiences,” said Cindy George, 2014 NABJ Media Institute on Health: Health Policy and Health Inequities Conference Chair. “Speakers will provide attendees with tools to more effectively report and communicate information about health issues that affect underserved communities.”

 

NABJ's Sixth Annual Media Institute on Health is the only conference of its kind to focus exclusively on health disparities in communities of color and provide print, broadcast and digital journalists with tools to effectively report on the effects of the Affordable Care Act on underserved consumers. Journalists and media professionals will leave with resources to inform and empower readers, listeners and viewers to action. Past conferences have addressed HIV/AIDS, mental health, childhood obesity and infant mortality.

 

Pre-Registration, which ends March 24, 2014, is $79 for NABJ members and $129 for non-members. On-site registration is available starting April 9, 2014. The on-site registration fees are $129 for NABJ members and $159 for non-members. Registration is available at http://nabj.site-ym.com/events/event_details.asp?id=402037#
