The Changing Worlds of Journalism & Health Care with Inquirer Reporter Harold Brubaker
Wednesday, September 27 at 6:30 pm
Falls Library, 3501 Midvale Ave.
Inquirer reporter and East Falls resident Harold Brubaker will speak about his career in journalism in a program on September 27.
Brubaker has been at the Inquirer for almost 30 years and has covered different beats in the business arena – food, chemicals and manufacturing, finance, and since 2012, the “business side of health care.”
Janet Eaton, an East Falls Village member and nurse at Temple Hospital, will interview him. Among the topics they will cover are how the Inquirer and journalism have changed in 30 years, the closing of Hahnemann Hospital, the Patient Safety Act currently in the Pennsylvania State Senate, his analysis of nursing home data in 2012, and the impact of Covid on the long-term care industry. One of his recent articles concerned the plan for local hospitals and health agencies to work together to eradicate race-based medicine.
The free program will be held in the Library Meeting Room (use the Midvale Ave. entrance) and is open to everyone. No registration is required. Use the garden side entrance at Midvale & Warden Drive for wheelchair access to the Meeting Room.
