Schorsch publishes series on Mercy Hospital in Chicago

Kristen Schorsch (BS '03, journalism) recently published a series of digital and audio stories she completed thanks to a fellowship with the Association of Health Care Journalists, with support from the Commonwealth Fund. 

The series explores the near death of Mercy Hospital, the oldest chartered hospital in Chicago, and the toll it took on the community it served. The stories illustrate why access to health care is unequal in Chicago and across the nation. 

Schorsch covers public health and Cook County on the government and politics team at WBEZ Chicago public radio. Follow her on Twitter @kschorsch.
