The Pulitzer Center is delighted to announce four 2023 Reporting Fellows who will pursue stories of climate change and inequities in global health. The Fellows will be reporting from locations ranging four continents.
Julia Knoerr's reporting will take her to Collier County, Florida, to study how the pandemic has played a role in exacerbating existing health inequities for migrant farmworkers in the county, which in turn limits their hurricane preparedness.
For her project with the Pulitzer Center, Sararat Tosakoon will report on the various legal and systemic barriers that limit access to health care for the transgender community in Thailand.
Muriel Alarcón's latest project for the Pulitzer Center will take her through her home country of Chile and Patagonia as she investigates sustainable practices and legislation seeking to protect the peatlands that are essential to regulating Earth’s climate.
Beatrice Zemelyte will focus on how Lithuania is addressing the impacts of climate change amid rising inflation levels and the war in Ukraine.
Funding for these Fellowships comes from the Rockefeller Foundation and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Department of Science Education. Fellows were selected from a special call open to Campus Consortium partner students and recent alums.
