Thursday webinar for journalists on Affordable Care Act to focus on ways to approach stories

The Kaiser Family Foundation's informative series of webinars for journalists about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act continues Thursday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. ET. This webinar will focus on "approaches to covering this complex story by incorporating individual examples; provide tips and techniques for digging into the details of the law (with expert help) to describe how its provisions play out in real life; and suggest new angles and under-reported story ideas. Additionally, they will identify upcoming policy deadlines and timelines and explore how to weave these into your stories over the next several months," according to Kaiser. The event will be hosted by Kaiser staff writer Sarah Varney and Michelle Andrews, who writes a weekly health column for The Washington Post.
