Free health journalism seminars

USC is seeking applications for its upcoming all-expenses-paid seminars in health journalism. The four day "California Health Journalism Fellowship" programs, held by the university's Annenberg School for Communication in Los Angeles, are "open to all professional print, broadcast and online journalists with a passion for health news, not just reporters on the health beat."

Session 1, from July 31-Aug. 3, will focus on investigating hospitals and nursing homes, understanding medical statistics and medical studies, narrative story telling techniques and more.

Session 2, from Oct. 23-26, will explore the latest thinking about how neighborhood life, work conditions, social inequities, race and education influence health. It will also discuss digital story telling.

The deadline to apply is June 27. For more info, contact (213) 437-4419 or calendow (at) usc.edu.
