NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

Proud of my undergrad health journalism students

Posted By


I’m proud to offer a link to a class project done by four undergraduate students in my Advanced Reporting Methods: Health & Medical Journalism class.

“The Uninsured: You’re in your 20s. Why should you care?” is a website researched, designed and launched by four seniors.

Mind you, it’s not perfect. But consider that this was an effort of 20-something undergrads. They proved that you can tackle a complex issue and make it come to life for your audience using various media formats.

There were three other noteworthy student projects in this class this semester but this is the only one I can make immediately publicly accessible.

There is hope for the future of health journalism.
