The program will begin at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 13 and conclude Friday, Nov. 14, at 2 p.m.

“Healthcare is one of the most important and complex economic stories we cover in the media,” said Marty Wolk, SABEW president and managing editor of MSN Money. “These annual seminars, developed by SABEW with support from the Commonwealth Fund, have become great opportunities to meet with experts, generate new story ideas and share notes with others covering the beat.”

Those selected will receive round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations and an expense stipend.

Since 2007, Commonwealth has sponsored SABEW’s education efforts in the specialized area of healthcare reform.
