Children's Health Matters, a blog curated and reported by Journalist Ryan White, along with other collaborators, shares the latest research, journalism and ideas on pediatric health and child development outcomes; prevention models to reduce health disparities for ill children and children born into poverty; and trends in children's health and well-being.

Dr. Monya De, MD, MPH, blogs about health care delivery and health reform, drawing on her experience and observations as a primary care physician.

This blog explores how health reform is changing the ways in which we pay for and deliver health care in the U.S. On any given week, that could mean a look at how Republican plans to repeal Obamacare could reshape the individual insurance market, how the safety net system is adapting to new financial pressures, or whether Trumpcare will affect the trend of doctors and hospitals merging into ever-larger entities. We also explore health care costs and whether Obamacare or its successor plans can live up the promise to rein them in. Throughout, we keep watch on how the goals of health reform intersect with the shaping power of markets and human behavior. Contributors include veteran health journalist Trudy Lieberman, David Lansky, executive director of the Pacific Business Group on Health, and independent health journalist Kellie Schmitt. , content editor of Center for Health Journalism Digital, serves as the blog's principal editor. 

“Slow Medicine” refers to a thoughtful, evidence-based approach to care and emphasizes careful clinical reasoning. It draws on many of the principles of the broader "Slow Movement,” which have been applied to a wide range of fields including food, art, parenting and technology. In this blog, authors and Dr. Pieter Cohen discuss a wide variety of medical and health care issues in an informal manner, writing as if everyone on the list will be joining them in clinic later in the afternoon.

The Health Divide blog explores the ways in which health is shaped by factors outside of the doctor’s office. We’ll look at the conditions where people live and work, and the influence of race, class and immigration status. Such factors can have an outsize role in determining individual and community well-being, influencing how long we live and the quality of our lives. We’ll highlight and hope to spur great journalism around these themes — and hope to hear of work in the journalism and policy sphere that our readers admire. We’ll also look at the health care policy landscape and efforts to close the gap between the haves and have nots when it comes to health.

 

 

Here we check in with prominent health journalists and experts to see what sites, newsletters and social media feeds they turn to first every morning.

William Heisel, former investigative reporter for the Los Angeles Times, writes about investigative health reporting. He is currently the director of global engagement at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.
