Kate Long - Health Journalism Fellow
For 25 years, I've coached writers and editors at papers, conferences and associations (including CDHJF) around the country. I also produce projects for my two home bases in my home state of West Virginia: The Charleston Gazette and West Virginia Public Radio.
I am very centered on West Virginia and the Appalachian area. I have written extensively about health insurance (lack thereof), community health centers (FQHCs), health care reform, medical home projects, health issues affecting elderly, and social determinants of health, such as predatory mortgages.
