Health Care Reporter
Pauline Bartolone can't imagine a better job - she learns new things from new people all day long, delves deep into health and politics, and gets crafty with sound.
Pauline has been recognized for her health reporting at CapRadio. Her coverage of state budget cuts to services for low-income adults won a regional Edward R. Murrow award. And her look into the type-two diabetes epidemic won a first prize from the Association of Health Care Journalists.
Before joining Capital Public Radio, her reporting took her on many adventures. She freelanced from seven Latin American countries, including the Ecuadorian Andes, where her coverage of climate change co-won a 2006 George Polk Award in radio. As a Knight-Carnegie fellow, she reported on Muslim families choosing polygamy in the U.S. In California, she's taken on farm workers' food access and chemical exposure in nail salons, the latter of which received an investigative award from the Society of Professional Journalists' NorCal chapter.
Pauline used to use videos and photos to tell stories. She holds an M.J. in New Media from UC Berkeley's School of Journalism.
