Welcome…..

to the new Region 1 blog.

I’m your new Region 1 Director, Luther Turmelle. I’m hoping this blog will offer SPJ members in the region – both pros and college students – the opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions about journalism. I also plan to use it to make you aware of training opportunities that are available.

One such opportunity is coming up on Oct. 17th and 18th in New York City, where the Association of Health Care Journalists is hosting an Urban Health Journalism Workshop. The workshop will include a hands-on computer-assisted reporting program on how to use spreadsheets to analyze health care data. There will be nine special topic sessions and Los Angeles Times Columnist Steve Lopez will deliver the keynote speech for the event. Lopez will talk about how a series of columns on a homeless, mentally ill musician he passed on the streets each day became a moving book, “The Soloist.”

For more information on the workshop, go to http://www.healthjournalism.org/urban08

Any questions, call me at (203) 789-5706 or e-mail me at lturmelle@ctspj.org
