This project will allow the Montana Free Press to research, investigate, report, and publish in-depth stories about health care and health care policy in Montana. Stories will be complemented with video interviews published online and a social media campaign aimed at reaching and engaging key audiences and advancing civic discourse. Grant funding will enable the Montana Free Press editor to travel around the state, interview key stakeholders, and research important issues central to the biggest health care debates facing Montana. The resulting journalism will be a critical source of reliable information for voters and citizens engaging in those debates.
