Aneri Pattani

Current Fellow

Aneri Pattani is a national correspondent with Kaiser Health News (KHN), where she reports on a broad range of public health topics, including mental health, substance use, and the health of adolescents and young adults. Her previous reporting in Pennsylvania highlighted ethnic disparities in adolescent suicide attempts and exposed a community college’s plan to eliminate mental health services, sparking student protest and a partial policy reversal. Pattani was a 2019 recipient of the Rosalynn Carter Fellowship for Mental Health Journalism, and covered the impact of racism on college students’ academic success and mental health as part of her fellowship project.

All of KHN’s original content is available to other news organizations and the public free of charge.
