Health Equity

Connecticut Public Broadcasting

2023 - $100,000

This funding will support Connecticut Public Broadcasting’s coverage of health disparities and health policy issues in Connecticut through a full-time health reporter for the next two years. Coverage will also be informed by other relevant issues impacting communities of color including education and the environment. CT Public will share its health coverage via radio, television, web, and social media platforms.  

The Connecticut Health Foundation provides grants to media organizations because news reporting on health care provides insights, informs debates, and ensures that critical topics reach broad audiences. The funding is awarded with an understanding that the journalism will be independent, and the grant will play no role in editorial decisions about health coverage.
