California Healthcare Foundation: Center for Health Reporting

From a posting in the Scout Report

http://www.centerforhealthreporting.org/
Health care journalism is a rapidly growing field, and the California HealthCare Foundation’s Center for Health Reporting is a new venture of note in this area. The Center is based out of the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism and is funded by the California HealthCare Foundation. The focus of their work is to partner with news organizations across the state “to explore questions about the quality and costs of health care and about Californian’s ability to access it.” Recently, they have worked on projects documenting the diabetes epidemic in California’s farming communities, the impact of forest fires and firefighting techniques on health, and the exodus of local primary doctors. On their homepage, visitors can read about their “Projects”, read some of their recent reports, and also check out the “Fast Facts” area. Also, their blog is a pleasant find, and it contains links to some of the aforementioned reports along with commentary on pressing health issues facing Californians. [KMG]
