Union World Conference on Lung Health

The Journalist to Journalist Lung Health Media Training is an all-expenses-paid, six day fellowship for health journalists of the National Press Foundation and the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease. This 6th annual program is a three-day intensive training followed by full access to the 45th Union World Conference on Lung Health—the premier international gathering of lung health researchers and others. 
The training is designed for working journalists who want to increase their knowledge and skill at developing stories on lung health and related issues, including tuberculosis; TB/HIV; asthma, COPD, diabetes and tobacco control. Journalists hear presentations from world-class experts on these diseases, the extent and impact of the problems they present (including social, political and economic impacts) and new research, solutions and innovations in the pipeline. The sessions also include practical training in turning scientific information into effective web, print and broadcast stories.

Fellows attend the Union World Conference on Lung Health immediately following the Media Training (October 27 – 29). This year’s Conference, continuing through November 1, focuses on “Community-Driven Solutions for the Next Generation.” The J2J Media Training gives fellows extra tools and sources to get stories from the Conference.

Applications are sought from journalists working in any medium. Special though not exclusive attention will be given to applications from journalists in low- and middle-income countries, along with China, India, Russia and South Africa. Conference registration, round-trip air or train travel, hotel accommodation and per diem expenses are included in the fellowship for chosen fellows.

All J2J sessions will be in English, so proficient spoken and written English are essential. All applicants must be working journalists with at least three years experience covering health issues.
The deadline for applications is 5 PM EST July 18, 2014. Only online applications are accepted.

This program is sponsored by The Lilly MDR-TB Partnership and The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease. Additional funding provided by Aeras and the TB Alliance.
