Maureen O'Hagan - Health Journalism Fellow
I'm a reporter for The Seattle Times who has worked a range of beats, from courts to social services to food issues, my current assignment. Last year, I was part of the Seattle Times team that covered the deaths of four police officers and the manhunt to find the killer, an effort that won the newspaper the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Breaking News Reporting. Before coming to Seattle, I was a reporter for The Washington Post and for Willamette Week, a Portland, Ore., alternative newsweekly. In 1999-2000, I studied law and creative writing as a Michigan Journalism Fellow. In 2009, my story on a father caring for his disabled adult son won the Eugene S. Pulliam National Journalism Writing Award. Over the years I have been the recipient of numerous other state, regional, and national journalism awards, including being named a 2004 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Public Service.
