Top of the Morning: Ana B. Ibarra Edition

Here we check in with prominent health journalists and experts to see what sites, newsletters and social media feeds they turn to first every morning. This week, we caught up with Ana Ibarra, web reporter for Kaiser Health News. Here are her top morning reads.

After Twitter, California Healthline’s Daily Edition is the second thing I browse through at the beginning of my workday (and not only because I work for Kaiser Health News, which publishes the California Healthline). Even before joining KHN, I used Daily Edition to keep up with the biggest health policy stories in California. This was one way for me to learn about health policy that might have been of interest to readers in my region (the Central Valley at that time.)

Similarly, KHN’s Morning Briefing summarizes the top health care stories in the nation, including those pertaining to the ACA, pharmaceuticals, and currently, the election.

I also enjoy The Washington Post's To Your Health section, where I tend to find interesting coverage on mental health, technology and health, and new medical research.

More recently, I have also become a fan of the The Upshot, a New York Times blog with great data graphics. Although the blog covers more than just health care, many important beat stories are told on here through a combination of text, maps and interactive graphs. Sometimes attractive visuals make all the difference in a complex story. 

NPR’s Shots is another channel for engaging content on policy, public health and science.
