The IJB combines lessons learned over nearly a decade moving dozens of public interest stories from classrooms to media front pages and broadcast outlets through the National Student Investigative Reporting Network, which Rob Cribb began building in 2010. The model has since produced impactful student investigations into nursing home deficiencies, end-of-life care, environmental threats, medical malpractice, jury system inequalities, youth mental health, two-tiered healthcare, oil industry impacts on public health and lead-tainted drinking water across Canada.
