To increase public understanding of the connections between the health of people, places, and the planet, we are thrilled to launch our new Media Fellowship program!
Our goal is to increase media coverage that reflects a broad vision of health; is science-based; and accurately reports on pertinent ideas, questions, and debates.
Through this new program, we seek to embrace solutions journalism, while at the same time combating dangerous mis- and dis-information, which has become a particularly acute problem in health and science communications. We also want to disseminate innovative research and ideas, and evidence-based information, to many different audiences in understandable and engaging formats.
We’re excited to support journalists who wish to immerse themselves in the health field and complete media projects that explore the many factors that promote well-being, prevent disease, contribute to healing, and increase an individual’s ability to flourish and live a fulfilling life.
Media Fellows become part of our transdisciplinary Nova Scholars and Fellows community and will receive training from the Solutions Journalism Network. They will also receive support from our Media Advisory Council, comprised of incredible experts and leaders in the field — we are so grateful to them for helping us shape this new program.
We’re thrilled to support innovative health communicators and eager to see what stories they tell!
