Applications are now open for the Health Journalism Impact funds for all the nations around the world. The University of Southern California offers an incredible funding opportunity under the program Annenberg School of Journalism Center for Health Journalism Impact. Through this funding program, Research projects will be conducted on systemic racism in the medical insurance policy and practice and disparities in treatment, patient engagement, and health outcomes for Black, Indigenous, and people of colour.
All the potential journalists who are dedicated to highlighting the health care industry issues are encouraged to apply. The recent hit of a deadly pandemic calls greatly the need for such journalism that can raise voice against the inequalities patients have to face in the treatment process and the overall healthcare industry. In all this cause, the Center for Health Journalism will financially support you, and this is the unique funding program ever in the history of America.
Applicants are required to propose a potential project that will shed light on the racial discrimination in health systems, especially in some sensitive areas like reproductive health and maternity care, as well as birth outcomes; cancer prevention and treatment; diabetes, kidney failure, and amputations; heart disease prevention and treatment; drug treatment and mental health care. Under this program, 5 to 8 potential journalists will be selected to highlight these issues.
