SABEW gets $15,000 grant
The Commonwealth Fund has awarded a $15,000 grant to the Society of American Business Editors and Writers to conduct a series of education programs focusing on aspects of the nation’s new health-care reform law.
The programs will be onsite and online, said Warren Watson, executive director of SABEW, the nation’s largest and oldest organization of business and financial journalists.
It is the third such grant Commonwealth has awarded to SABEW, which has conducted seven workshops on the business of health care with Commonwealth Fund support since 2007, the most recent in April 2010.
SABEW will conduct webinars and two workshops at its national conferences under the grant. The first education session will be held in New York Oct. 1 at SABEW’s annual fall conference, to be held at City University of New York. The second onsite workshop will be at SABEW’s annual spring conference at Southern Methodist University in Dallas April 7-9, 2011.
“We’re pleased and thankful that our partnership with The Commonwealth Fund will continue with this grant,” said Watson. “Journalists we reach will better understand the complexities of the health-care law.”
