Journalist Antigone Barton participated at the "Mobilizing and Engaging Communities for Global Health" conference at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Barton joined other experts to discuss policy initiatives such as PEPFAR, the relationship between education and health and the media's role in raising awareness of global epidemics.

The conference was hosted by Americans for Informed Democracy and is part of the organization's larger efforts to engage today's youth and inspire them to become proponents for change.

Barton's coverage of global health issues includes the Pulitzer Center-supported "Heroes of HIV: HIV in the Caribbean" reporting project.
