Featured journalist: Jeffrey Young

Aug 06, 2014

Today we'd like to introduce you to Jeffrey Young (that is, if you don't already know him!), health care reporter with Huffington Post. So far in his career, Young has been charged with covering such hotbutton national news as the Medicare prescription drug benefit bill, health care reform, and a wide variety of other legislative and political beats, garnering him awards from The Society of Professional Journalists on three different occasions. While Young is not a fan of social media's effect on news ("It's making journalists more annoying," he writes), he does have a favorite hashtag: #PantsBurnLegWound.

Be sure to stop by Young's portfolio to browse his award-winning work. Here's one of his latest: "In States Where It's Wanted, Obamacare Is Working Well" (which garnered 11,607 shares).

Remember: If you also want to be featured here, you should 1) set up your own journalist portfolio 2) get verified and 3) let us know by emailing Kirsten.
