AHCJ-CDC Health Journalism Fellowship

AHCJ has teamed up with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with the support of the NIHCM Foundation, for this premier program that allows a select group of journalists to spend several days interacting with CDC experts in Atlanta. 

This in-person event is scheduled for May 21-24, 2023.

AHCJ-CDC Fellows will:

  • Learn about the latest CDC research and data on topics including maternal mortality, infectious diseases, chronic diseases, environmental health and other emerging public health issues
  • Meet new sources they can reach during health emergencies – building a level of trust that allows them to provide better information to their audiences and communities
  • Learn how to tap the agency’s abundant resources to produce better stories
  • Interact with colleagues from across the country

Candidates must be working journalists who qualify for AHCJ professional membership (check to see if you qualify). The fellowship program includes one year of a new or renewed AHCJ membership.
