Johns Hopkins University, including the Bloomberg School of Public Health and School of Nursing, and Johns Hopkins Medicine, will serve as local host for the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ) conference that will take place in Baltimore, MD, in May 2019.
The organization’s annual conference, which draws attendees from across the U.S. and several other countries, is slated for May 2-5, 2019, at the Hilton Baltimore.
The conference, which usually draws 700-800 attendees, will feature three and a half days of workshops, panels, roundtables and field trips covering the latest topics in medical science, health policy, public health, medical education, consumer health and the business of health care. Sessions focus on the special needs of reporters, editors and producers as they attempt to cover these topics for their audiences.
The conference will include the annual luncheon for the Awards for Excellence in Health Care Journalism, the annual Freelancer PitchFest, and AHCJ’s annual membership meeting, as well as receptions and other meals included in the registration fee.
