Dave Davis \ Joan Mazzolini

Dave Davis teaches at Youngstown State University, where he is the first-ever Journalism Fellow. He worked for 24 years at The Plain Dealer, mostly as a reporter, before leaving the newspaper in July, 2013, with about 50 colleagues. Davis wrote extensively about the nation’s widening racial health divide, aviation safety, and inequities in the nation’s transplant system. He has been honored with an Investigative Reporters & Editors Inc. Medal, a Polk Award, and the Heywood Broun Award, among others. Joan Mazzolini worked for nearly 19 years at The PD, doing investigations and covering different beats, including the business of medicine and the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, when the voting machines failed. She previously worked at the now closed Birmingham (Al) Post-Herald, where she wrote a series of stories that forced private country clubs to integrate. She has won several national awards and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
