Hi all,

One health story eclipses all others. Decades of media decline have left many local outlets without dedicated health reporters and many communities without quality informed health coverage. 

At Issue Media Group, we’ve grown our coverage of health care over the past few years. This month, we spotlighting several ongoing series that cover topics from food security to healthy aging to mental health. Thanks to the support and engagement of health stakeholders across Michigan, we’re able to take a statewide perspective as well as a local lens to some of the most pressing challenges facing communities—and the people doing incredible work to address them.

Thanks for your attention and partnership,
Brian and Paul
