The Fairbanks School of Public Health Media Fellowship is a new professional development series for journalists across the state of Indiana. The fellowship will offer a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of the public health and health administration issues affecting Hoosiers.
This training will focus on state and local issues, with attention on the policy, data, leadership and cost of care issues that influence health.
“Local journalism is often how people connect to their community,” said Paul Halverson, founding dean and professor at the Fairbanks School. “Public health is essential to keeping communities healthy and safe. Who can better communicate that message than the journalists who are trusted community resources?”
Journalists across the state of Indiana are invited to attend and the fellowship is free for all participants.
The fellowship will consist of 10 hours of instruction, over five sessions. Sessions will occur over five Fridays in December 2022 and January 2023.
