Nieman Fellows in Global Health are Named

I'm pleased to report that yours truly, Christine Gorman, has just been named one of three Nieman Foundation Fellows for Global Health Reporting at Harvard University for the class of 2007-2008. The other two global health journalists are Ran An (China) from China Newsweek and Andrew Quinn (United Kingdom) from Reuters.

We'll be joining 27 other Nieman Fellows who will be exploring such wide-ranging topics as increasing friction between Muslim and Christian societies, racial implications of urban sprawl and the impact of government regulations on alternative energy technologies.

In addition to exploring basic healthcare infrastructure in developing countries, I plan to use my Nieman year to figure out ways of expanding coverage of global health news beyond traditional media outlets.

Here's the press release with more information about all 30 Nieman Foundation Fellows for 2007-2008.

Congrats from me, too. Does this mean you will be in residence in Cambridge next year?

Thanks. Yes, I'll be in Cambridge starting in mid-August through at least the end of May 2008.
