One thought on “CA fellowships to attend Health Journalism 2011”

  1. Thanks so much for letting people know about the fellowships. I just wanted to add that we also offer fellowships for journalists who cover rural health, those who cover nonhealth beats, those who work in the ethnic media and journalists in Missouri, New York and Oregon, as well as California. The deadline for all of those fellowships is Feb. 23.

    We are excited to be able to offer an unprecedented number of fellowships to help journalists attend Health Journalism 2011.
