UGA Health and Medical Journalism students examine a dark corner of Georgia healthcare

Nine graduate students in the Grady College Health and Medical Journalism program traveled to the southwest corner of Georgia in late March to report seldom-told stories about health and healthcare in a region where poverty and poor health are endemic.

From March 20 to March 24, the students fanned out by car to pursue new stories on a beat they had been following all semester. While one student went to Sumter County to cover teen sexual health, others traveled to Moultrie to report on childhood obesity or to Albany to interview low-income elders. They aimed to uncover stories often overlooked by mainstream Georgia media.
