Missouri Health Talks



Missouri Health Talks is a conversation-based journalism project that shares Missourians’ stories about access to healthcare. Health Reporter Rebecca Smith travels throughout the state to network with community organizations, record conversations and edit them into four-minute pieces. The interactive Missouri Health Talks website enables visitors to find stories from their own communities. In the project’s first two years, it has produced 79 original conversations, a rural community health resource fair, many live events, in-depth 30-minute specials broadcast on the local talk show, and a spin-off podcast.
