John Sepulvado

Health Care Reporter

John Sepulvado began his journalism career covering the Texas statehouse. He focused on the legislature's changes to medical malpractice tort law. He started in radio with the NPR member station in Tallahassee during the Jeb Bush era. Sepulvado covered controversial Medicaid changes as well as the Terri Schiavo story. In 2006, he teamed up with colleague Ben Adler to extensively cover the outbreak of E. coli in California spinach. In 2007, Sepulvado reported on the death of a young Floridian in state care. Those reports led to a million dollar settlement between the state and the family. In 2008, Sepulvado's reporting on a likely carcinogenic chemical in the Northwest Georgia water supply helped spur major changes to the local carpet industry that eliminated the chemical from the manufacturing process. And in 2009 and 2010, Sepulvado's joint reporting with Emily Green on a failed Georgia workers comp company led to a state criminal investigation, as well as changes to state law. Sepulvado joined Capital Public Radio in 2010 as our Health Care Reporter.
