Karl Stark, a seasoned journalist with more than three decades of experience in the field, is the Director of Content Strategy & Editor in Residence at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania. In this role, he focuses on encouraging LDI Fellows to write for the public and share their expertise with others.

Prior to joining LDI, Stark worked for the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he held several key positions including Health Editor, Business News Editor and National/Foreign Editor. His reporting on the bankrupt Allegheny health system helped lead to indictments of the top three executives. He also served as President of the Association of Health Care Journalists, a leading group of health reporters and editors in the country.

Stark is a co-author of AHCJ’s “Covering the Quality of Health Care – A Resource Guide for Journalists” and leads a session on covering hospital finances at AHCJ’s annual meeting. He is also a graduate of Yale University where he played varsity tennis and has distant memories of skating competitively with his sister Julie.

The Follow the Money series is an exciting opportunity for journalists to learn how to use AHCJ’s site and other tools to report stories about hospitals’ financial health. This four-part series produced by AHCJ and Investigative Reporters and Editors is free for all journalists thanks to generous support from NIHCM Foundation. Join us as we explore the intricacies of healthcare finance and learn how to tell stories that matter!
