USC Annenberg and California HealthCare Foundation Join in New Health Care Journalism Venture
Date:9/17/2009

$3.28 Million Grant to Support In-depth, Explanatory Reporting

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At a time of uncertainty and transition in the news media, the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication announced today a unique partnership with the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) to undertake in-depth reporting on health policy issues throughout the state.

Funded by a three-year $3,285,000 grant, the California HealthCare Foundation Center for Health Reporting at the Annenberg School for Communication will team up with journalists of both traditional and emerging media to report on the most vexing health care issues facing the state: quality, access and cost.

"We are pleased and excited to launch such a critical venture with the California HealthCare Foundation," said USC Annenberg Dean Ernest J. Wilson III. "In an era when traditional media are facing shrinking resources to cover the important issues of our society, we are fulfilling one of the school's critical tenets: to be of service to all people. There is no better time, and no better topic."

Throughout its 12-year history, CHCF has shown a strong commitment to supporting and producing non-partisan research and analysis to support evidence-based decision-making in government and the private sector.

"At this very turbulent time in the evolution of California's media, it is important to support thoughtful explanatory reporting on these crucial health care issues," said Mark D. Smith, M.D., M.B.A., president and CEO of the Oakland-based California HealthCare Foundation.

Leading the Center will be USC Professor Michael Parks, the Pulitzer Prize-winning former Los Angeles Times editor, who recently completed a seven year term as director of the journalism school at USC Annenberg.
