The “Follow the Money” series, created by AHCJ and Investigative Reporters and Editors, is a four-part program aimed at helping journalists tell the story of the business side of healthcare. Karl Stark, an AHCJ member and Director of Content Strategy & Editor in Residence at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, will lead the first session, demonstrating how to use AHCJ’s site and other tools to report on hospitals’ financial well-being.

The “Follow the Money” series is available for free to journalists thanks to the generous support of the NIHCM Foundation. Karl Stark’s work at LDI focuses on encouraging Fellows to write for the public. Prior to his current role, he spent over 30 years at The Philadelphia Inquirer, holding positions such as Health Editor, Business News Editor, and National/Foreign Editor. His investigative reporting on Allegheny Health System led to the indictment of its top three executives. He has also served as President of AHCJ and co-authored AHCJ’s “Covering Quality Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists.” His session on covering hospital finances is a highlight at AHCJ’s annual meeting. Karl is a graduate of Yale University, where he was a varsity tennis player and competed in skating alongside his sister Julie.
