Side Effects Public Media

About This Section
Public health, personal stories.

Side Effects Public Media is a health news initiative exploring the impacts of place, policy and economics on America's health. The group's reporting sheds light on root causes of community-wide health problems—from chronic disease, to mental health and addiction, to infant mortality—and on new efforts to solve them.

Side Effects is headquartered at WFYI Public Media in Indianapolis, and work in partnership with KBIA is Columbia, Missouri; St. Louis Public Radio; Illinois Public Media in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois; WNIN in Evansville, Indiana; and WOSU Public Media, in Columbus, Ohio.

They also work with contributing reporters from other public radio stations around the Midwest and Great Lakes regions. We're intent on telling stories from under-covered communities and hidden-away places.
