Investigative Journalist Karl Stark to Lead Webinar on the Business Side of Healthcare

Karl Stark, an experienced journalist and Director of Content Strategy & Editor in Residence at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania, will lead the first webinar in a four-part series called “Follow the Money,” created by AHCJ and Investigative Reporters and Editors to help journalists tell the story of the business side of healthcare. The webinar is available to journalists for free, thanks to the generous support of the NIHCM Foundation.

Stark’s work at LDI focuses on encouraging LDI Fellows to write for the public. Prior to his current role, he spent over thirty years at the Philadelphia Inquirer, holding positions such as Health Editor, Business News Editor, and National/Foreign Editor. His investigative reporting on the bankrupt Allegheny health system led to the indictment of its top three executives. Stark has also been President of the Association of Health Care Journalists and is a co-author of AHCJ’s “Covering the Quality of Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists.” His session on covering hospital finances is a highlight at AHCJ’s annual meeting. He is a graduate of Yale University, where he was a varsity tennis player and also competed in skating alongside his sister Julie.
