Description

This timely book describes the details of three real case studies of investigative journalism about health care. Stories include journalists exposing wrongdoing by drug companies, neglect of dying patients in by hospice home-care providers, and lead-poisoning from drinking water in Flint, Michigan. Readers will gain an understanding of the research process, the ethical standards journalists must follow, and the perseverance required to confirm a story and affect change. Teacher’s guide available.
