THE KAISER MEDIA INTERNSHIPS in Health Reporting for 2012

The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation is sponsoring sixteen summer interns to work with news organizations nationwide. The program is designed for young journalists interested in reporting on health issues, especially on health issues that affect immigrant and diverse populations and their communities. One area of emphasis will be mobile healthcare. MHCA members, Dr. Nancy Oriol (The Family Van, Harvard Medical School) and Dr. Matt Levy (Georgetown KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic) met with the interns in Washington, DC for a briefing on health issues and the mobile healthcare sector in particular.

Following are articles published by the interns during the summer:
