A A AResize



Deadline Extended Until September 22, 2010

The fellowship will support ethnic media journalists to research and write at least one in-depth story, documenting the human impact of a health care issue, or policy issue, or the impact of environmental toxins on human health. The story, or series, will be published or broadcasted in the fellows’ respective ethnic media outlets, and selected stories will be published on NAM’s web site. Fellows will receive a $2000 stipend at the completion of the fellowship program.

In addition, Fellows will participate in a mandatory two-day workshop hosted by the University of California Sacramento Center from Oct. 19-20, 2010 where they will meet state level policy makers, and leading health reporters, advocates and researchers. As a part of the two-day workshop, fellows will also participate in a special NAM news briefing on Oct. 19, where experts will break down the new healthcare reform law and its impact on ethnic communities.

We’re particularly interested in stories that explore how the new healthcare reform law - which pumps more money into community health clinics and requires insurers to offer such preventive services as cancer and asthma screenings -- will impact efforts to address environmental health and justice issues in your communities.
