Covering prison health care is not for the faint of heart: there is little public sympathy for prisoners, getting information is difficult and sources risk retribution. Julie Small, state capitol reporter for Southern California Public Radio and a California Endowment Health Journalism Fellow, deftly navigated those challenges to produce her investigative series, Prison Affliction: Medical Care Inside California's State Prisons. I'll be moderating an BlogTalkRadio conversation with Julie and invite you to join us. Please RSVP here (appreciated but not required).
Small's series began airing on Monday on KPCC and will continue through Friday. You can get a taste for her reporting process and the discoveries she made in her Q&A with ReportingonHealth.
