HealthCare Workforce – Media Fellow Yael Maxwell’s wrap-up

yael maxwell

Last year, the Center for Health, Media and Policy at Hunter College received funding from the Johnson and Johnson Foundation to sponsor our first-ever Healthcare Workforce Media Fellowship. We sought an early-career health journalist interested in cross-platform reporting on the evolving role of nurses and other health providers.

Yael Maxwell, senior associate news editor at the cardiology news website was chosen as our inaugural fellow. Last September, she started work on a series delving into the intricacies and inconsistencies of team work in the cardiac cath lab. She takes a look back on her project and the results.

This episode will air Thursday, July 7 at 1:00 PM on HealthCetera on WBAI Pacifica Radio 99.5 FM streamed at

  • Hello Yael,
    It was wonderful to hear your feature on WBAI. Your reporting is both innovative and insightful.
    It was a pleasure hosting you at the Health Professions Education Center offices this past spring. We look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.
