The Commonwealth Fund grant focused on the intersection of public health and the economy
SABEW recently wrapped up a 12-month grant period during which we offered nine training sessions that largely focused on covering Covid-19. The pandemic highlighted the critical role business journalists play in covering the intersection of public health and the economy.
The Commonwealth Fund provided a $28,142 grant for training to help members report on the impact of shutting down the economy on businesses and citizens, how economics and epidemiology can work in harmony or be at odds, and how health insurers report big profits, benefiting from the pandemic.
The grant paid for our Feb. 2020 COVID-19 Deep Dive Virtual Symposium with five webinars covering vaccine development and policy, racial disparities and impediments to vaccination, and story ideas.
The grant also covered two virtual sessions at our Nov. 2020 conference about the Supreme Court and ACA and using the John Hopkins Covid-19 Virus Tracker.
Finally, we wrapped up the grant cycle with webinars about the vaccine rollout and a discussion of how/when we will get back to the workplace.
We’re deeply grateful for The Commonwealth Fund’s partnership.
