Webinar for Journalists: Researching Consumer Stories, Finding New Ideas & Securing Real-World Examples

Presented by the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Media Fellowships Program, the Foundation hosted an interactive webinar: “Covering The Affordable Care Act (ACA): Researching Consumer Stories, Finding New Ideas & Securing Real-World Examples.” Exclusively for journalists, this webinar took place on Thursday, November 14.

Featuring Kaiser Health News (KHN) Staff Writer Sarah Varney and KHN’s “Insuring Your Health” columnist Michelle Andrews, this webinar discussed approaches to covering this complex story by incorporating individual examples; provide tips and techniques for digging into the details of the law (with expert help) to describe how its provisions play out in real life; and suggest new angles and under-reported story ideas. Additionally, they identified upcoming policy deadlines and timelines, and explored how to weave these into your stories over the next several months. After the presentation, both presenters answered questions.

This webinar was the fourth in the Covering Health Reform: Webinars for Journalists series that seeks to address key aspects of the ACA, its implications for consumers, and strategies for connecting the dots for different audiences. Video and transcripts are available for the first three webinars.
