Started in 1993, the purpose of the program is to help journalists and commentators do the best possible job of keeping the public informed about health issues at a critical time in the evolution of the current state of the health care system in this country. Over a one year period, fellows pursue their own individual projects - this could be from examining health care legislations in Washington, DC to spending time in certain states/regions to see how policy is translated into practice at a local level. The recognition program is to help journalist improve the quality of work, deepen participants commitment to becoming specialists in health reporting.

There are core program activities (required participation) and these are: - complete at least one individually designed research project or field practicum - meet regularly with other Kaiser Media fellows and with a range of leading experts, policy makers, journalists and others in health field - participate in program site visits.
