Sarah Kliff is a journalist who specializes in the nitty-gritty of health-care politics and policy, and she currently writes for Vox.com and edits that website's helpful VoxCare email newsletter. (She previously covered health policy for the The Washington Post.) And it's a crucial time for good journalism about health, in an era of disinformation and honest confusion about the Affordable Care Act, the endless back-and-forth lurch of Republican efforts to repeal and undermine same, the devastation of the opioid crisis, political interference with women's healthcare, and on and on and on. Kliff visits here for a panel organized by UW-Madison's Center for Journalism Ethics. She'll be talking with Wisconsin State Journal reporter David Wahlberg and UW-Madison medical history and bioethics professor Paul Kelleher. —Scott Gordon
