SABEW seeks applicants for health care fellowship
The Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing is seeking applications for a symposium to help journalists better understand and get ahead of the complicated health care issues in the news.
Space is limited to 15 journalists. Selected journalists will receive a stipend to offset travel and cover two nights of hotel for out-of-town attendees. The application deadline is May 21.
To apply, go here.
The symposium will provide journalists a timely, in-depth update on a variety of issues, including:
The ACA: Following a federal judge’s ruling declaring the Affordable Care Act illegal, what is the future of the ACA as it hurtles toward the Supreme Court? What has been the impact of administration policies on the ACA?
Medicaid expansion: What has been the financial impact of Medicaid expansion? What are the implications of work requirements some states have tried to impose?
“Medicare for All”: With an election season underway, what can we learn about the many Democratic proposals and how much will they cost?
Prescription drug prices: President Trump is expected to deliver his first major speech on drug prices in early May. Will it have any impact on an industry in which costs continue to escalate?
Marijuana: As more states expand medical and recreational marijuana use, how is the industry shaping up and what kind of oversight is?
Symposium attendees will be able to share and test out story ideas at this seventh annual Business of Health Care Summit. The program begins the evening of Thursday, June 27 with a mixer and dinner at the National Press Club and ends midday Saturday, June 29.
Friday and Saturday events will be held at the Bloomberg newsroom on New York Ave. in Washington, D.C.
