April NewsPro - Health Journalism Focuses on Hot Topics: HBO's Portrait of an Epidemic; Will Obamacare Survive the Supreme Court Challenge?; and TV Segments About Health--News or Advertising?

In recent years, health journalists have struggled to find their place in the ever changing newsroom. In 2012, it has been politics and court cases that have thrust health journalism into the forefront within the breaking news realm. From the Supreme Court to overall medical advances to women's health rights, to the other various issues we mention in our headline, above, health journalists have answered the call to action this year.

Challenges facing journalists who cover these and other topics and much more are examined in the April issue of NewsPro. This issue coincides with the annual conference of the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ), being held in Atlanta, April 19 to 22.
