Welcome to My Survey

Thank you for your interest The New York Academy of Medicine 2019 Health Equity Journalism Prize.

Established in 2018 to recognize the importance of bringing to light the deep disparities that prevent so many people from enjoying a long and healthy life, the Health Equity Journalism Prize celebrates the journalists who address issues of equity including the structural and symbolic barriers to good health.

Submission Criteria

The prize is awarded each year to a journalist, or team of journalists, who write or produce one or more stories that unearth and examine health equity issues with a focus on disparities between populations that affect health.

  • Local and national print, radio, web, television stories/series
  • U.S.-based media outlets only
  • First publish date is between 1/1/18 and 12/31/18
