The four-part series, “Follow the Money,” is produced by AHCJ and Investigative Reporters and Editors. It is free for all journalists thanks to the generous support of the NIHCM Foundation.

Before joining LDI, he worked for more than three decades at the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he served as Health Editor, Business News Editor and National/Foreign Editor, among other positions. His reporting on the bankrupt Allegheny health system helped lead to indictments of the top three executives. He also served as President of the Association of Health Care Journalists, the nation’s leading group of health reporters and editors. He is a co-author of AHCJ’s “Covering the Quality of Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists” and leads a session on covering hospital finances at AHCJ’s annual meeting. He is a graduate of Yale University where he played varsity tennis and has distant memories of skating competitively with his sister Julie.

During this webinar series, Stark will show you how to use AHCJ’s hospitalfinances.org site and other tools to report stories about hospitals’ financial health. Whether you are an experienced journalist or just starting out in your career, this series will provide you with valuable insights into one of the most important issues facing our healthcare system today: money management within hospitals.
