This grant supports the continuing effort of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) to educate its members about the health and health care challenges facing Latinos in the United States, and to foster and promote professional advancement among its members by providing resources and materials on covering health and health care issues. This project will also help the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation achieve one of the key goals of its Multicultural Communications Initiative--to build better relationships with Latino media and to position RWJF's staff as spokespeople on health and health care issues that affect communities of color. Deliverables will include: (1) four regional roundtables for Latino journalists and other community stakeholders; (2) a keynote slot for a Foundation leader at each of the roundtables; (3) electronic materials for Latino journalists on covering health and health care issues in the Latino community; and (4) four commentaries on health and health care issues drafted by the NAHJ staff and disseminated to members.
