Pulitzer Center-supported photographer Cheryl Hatch participates in the third Allegheny Journalism Conference, a two-day event honoring women journalists and providing a platform to mentor students. Hatch presents "A Different War: Liberia in the Time of Ebola" on Friday, March 6.

Women photographers of the Crawford County community are the focus of this year's conference, hosted by the Journalism in the Public Interest Program at Allegheny College. Hatch is a documentary photographer with extensive international experience as an independent journalist and is currently a visiting professor at Allegheny College, which is located in Crawford County.

Hatch has focused her camera and reporting on war, its aftermath and its effects on soldiers, their families and those caught in the crossfire, especially women and children. She has worked in Liberia, Somalia, Iraq and Eritrea. In the winter of 2011-2012, she embedded with the 1/25 Stryker Brigade Combat Team 1st Battalion, 5th Infantry Regiment in Afghanistan. The Pulitzer Center supported the recent reporting project by Hatch and journalist Brian Castner, "The 101st Airborne, Fighting Ebola in Liberia."
