NABJ to Host Third Annual Media Institute on Health Disparities in California

WASHINGTON, DC (October 15, 2013) – The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) will host their first Northern California Health Disparities Media Institute in more than two years.   The third annual Media Institute on Health in California will be held at San Francisco State University (SFSU) on Saturday, November 2, 2013. This one-day education and informational conference is free to NABJ members and associates, all California and western region area media professionals, as well as student and media interns who wish to enhance their career skills.

The NABJ Health Disparities Media Institutes serve to highlight important health-related issues, both nationally, regionally and in the Bay Area of California.  In addition the sessions also provide print, broadcast and all professional and student practitioners with the tools to effectively comprehend and report on the impact of health care reform and health policy on underserved communities.

It is safe to say that journalists and other media-related practitioners will leave these sessions with the resources to inform and empower their news consumers.

Hosted by NABJ's Region VI Director Michelle Fitzhugh-Craig and local chapter leaders, this year's Media Institute will be held at San Francisco State University’s Humanities Building, in Room 308 -- from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with public health professionals, past and present notable journalists and media professionals, SFSU professors and instructors, and researchers in workshops that will cover topics such as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Health Insurance Marketplace Exchange, veterans’ unique healthcare issues, and healthcare disparities and inequities in the headlines of northern California and the Bay Area.
