New health news service hiring journalists

If you're looking for a reporting job covering health and medicine, you might want to send a resume to Kaiser Family Foundation, which is launching a news service covering health policy.

"Over the next several months, a team of full-time journalists will be hired and top freelance journalists will be recruited to write stories and series for distribution" through Kaiser Health News, according to the news release.

The news service will be headquartered in Washington, D.C., and overseen by top journalists from the Wall Street Journal and Congressional Quarterly.

All news content will be available for free on a new website, www.kaiserhealthnews.org, expected to go live in early 2009. KHN will also partner with news organizations to jointly produce and publish articles, and will provide free content for syndication to news organizations in the U.S. and around the world.

"The goal of the new effort is to provide in-depth coverage and news at a time when cash-strapped news organizations are being forced to scale back their efforts in this crucial area," the news release says.
