Our reporters Charles Ornstein and Tracy Weber have been investigating the U.S. health care system for years. They've probed money that doctors receive from drug companies, as well as lax oversight of California nurses (a 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist.) They’ve also extensively covered the U.S. transplant program.
The duo, who won a 2005 Pulitzer Prize, will be answering reader questions in a Facebook chat on Wednesday, April 4 at 2 p.m.
Charlie and Tracy started working together nine years ago at the Los Angeles Times. Before that, Tracy worked at the Orange County Register, and Charlie was at the Dallas Morning News.
They won’t be able to answer all questions, but most healthcare-related topics are fair game: medical ethics, the basics of the U.S. healthcare system, how to pick a good doctor, or what it’s like to report with the same person for nearly a decade.
Some tips on participating:
- You must have a Facebook account to participate.
- The chat will be hosted on ProPublica’s main Facebook account, and our reporters will be joining via Charlie’s personal account.
- We’ll post an update at 1:30 p.m. to start the chat; once you see it, feel free to start posting your comments and questions.
- We will remove any comments that are off-topic or inappropriate, so please keep it clean.
See you Wednesday!
