2013 Association of Health Care Journalists/National Library of Medicine Fellows Announced!

Posted by on September 12th, 2013 Posted in: Announcements, General, NLM Resources

Eight journalists represent this year’s class of AHCJ-National Library of Medicine fellows. The fellowship program was created to increase reporters’ access and understanding of the resources available at the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Institutes of Health.

The journalists chosen to take part this year are:

  • Betsy Agnvall, features editor, AARP Bulletin
  • Kristine Crane, science & health writer, The Gainesville(FL) Sun
  • Robert Fulton, independent journalist, Los Angeles
  • Christine Gorman, senior editor, Scientific American
  • Elizabeth Landau, writer/producer, CNN.com
  • Valerie Lego, health reporter, WZZM-Grand Rapids, MI
  • Robert Lott, editor of special content, Health Affairs
  • Kerry Sheridan, health and science writer, Agence France-Presse

The fellows’ visit to the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, September 15-19, includes hands-on workshops about how to use and get the most from government research databases, such as PubMed, MedlinePlus, ClinicalTrials.gov and ToxNet. Fellows also will meet with senior NLM and NIH researchers and officials for exclusive informational sessions. The fellows were selected from 42 qualified applicants. AHCJ is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing public understanding of health care issues. With more than 1,400 members, its mission is to improve the quality, accuracy and visibility of health care reporting, writing and editing. The association and its Center for Excellence in Health Care Journalism are based at the Missouri School of Journalism.
