Golembiewski said she enjoyed learning from Pulitzer Prize-winning Jackson. “Not only did David have trust in my work, but he taught me a lot through his investigative process, interviewing skills, and reporting structure,” she says.
These skills will be essential as she continues her career, Golembiewski says: “Together we combed through hundreds of contacts and data, and I can now pick out important information in data and state contracts.”
Seventeen students in two classes contributed research to the series. Martin says this real-world experience is exactly what he was looking for his students. “I wanted an application component so students could experience real steps of investigative reporting that holds government accountable and puts ethics into practice.”
Winners of the National Institute for Health Care Management Foundation awards will be announced this month.
