Nancy Cambria, Award-Winning Journalist and Reporter, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Fellow, Center for Health Journalism, University of Southern California

Nancy Cambria has reported for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for more than a decade, centering on the region's most vulnerable children and families. Last year, in the aftermath of the protests and violence that erupted in Ferguson, Cambria spent seven months reporting on children still living the area. Her report, “The Crisis Within: How toxic stress and trauma endanger our children,” focused on evolving research indicating inequity, poverty and violence can deeply impair child brain and physical development and lead to poor health outcomes in adulthood. Cambria has won numerous local and national awards for her reporting. She has a B.A. in English from Skidmore College and an M.A. in English and Creative Writing from Ohio University.
