Apology from JAWS board of directors

“It’s never too late to drop your beliefs and let your wounds heal. Instead of wounding others as well.”  ― Adam Scythe, Immortals, Vol. II

JAWS is an organization I have been honored to be a part of for many years, not just because it is led by women who broke down newsroom barriers for women but because it has provided me a safe space to vent about being a woman of color in mostly all-white and all-male workplaces for most of my career.

CAMP 2018: Global Health Reporting Tip Sheet

By Amy Westervelt

The lead

Rachel Jones has been a journalist for 32 years, starting at The St. Petersburg Time in 1986. She came to health reporting through personal experience. “I fell at a young age, cracked a tooth, and we couldn’t afford to go to a dentist,” she said. As one of ten kids, born into poverty, Jones didn’t go to a dentist until she was 13 and says even as a child she knew it was wrong that other people went to doctors when they were sick when her family couldn’t. “I was angry about it, I thought ‘this is wrong, I ought to be able to go the doctor,’” she says. “And that really underpinned my interest in social justice and access to healthcare.”
