NABJ's Media Institute on Health, Health Policy and Health Inequities 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 impact of health care reform and health policy on underserved communities. Journalists and media professionals will leave with resources to inform and empower readers and viewers to action.

This 5th Annual Media Institute has garnered headlines and the attention of newsmakers in the fight to bring awareness to health and health care disparity.

Topics addressed at the Media Institute will include the social determinants of health, creative community solutions to health care access and prevention, newly enacted provisions of the Affordable Care Act and HIV/AIDS in the black community.
