Welcome to the Center for Health Reporting, a venture in new journalism that is shining a light on the most fundamental health-care issues facing Californians.
We are an independent news organization with no agenda but journalism excellence.
The Center operates out of the Leonard Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics at USC.
Now in our seventh year, we have built a network of nearly 50 news organizations across the state to explore tough questions about the quality and costs of health care and about the ability of Californians to access it. We actively seek new media partners to cooperatively pursue health stories of local, state and national interest.
Since our founding in 2009, we have produced more than 130 projects, working with media that include the state’s largest dailies, small newspapers servicing rural and ethnic communities, NPR affiliates and online news sites.
That work has helped reshape state laws, won honors, and aided our readers and listeners as they navigate the maze of federal health care reforms. Source
