Melba Newsom is the new AHCJ core theme leader for Health Equity. A veteran freelance journalist from Charlotte, NC, she has over 20 years of experience reporting on news and general interest topics.

Over the past year, she has reported extensively on COVID-19 in the black community, funded by a grant from the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting. Over the past decade, her work has focused primarily on education and health, with a focus on inequalities and rural health.

Her health and science features have appeared in Health Affairs, Oprah, Prevention, Scientific American, Chemical and Engineering News and North Carolina Health News.

Newsom received an AHCJ Health Performance Fellowship for a project focused on the underlying racial and ethnic inequalities surrounding the opioid crisis in North Carolina and how the face of the pandemic shifted from white to black and brown communities.

She will officially start her duty from June 14.

Health Equity Key Theme Resources is made possible with the support of the Commonwealth Fund, based in New York, which has a keen interest in this area.

Health equity is a topic among a broad list of core topics related to health and health care, which the AHCJ believes will help health journalists beat what they cover.
