Pulitzer Center grantee Melanie Saltzman brings "The Future of Food" to Campus Consortium partner Elon University for a two-day visit Monday, October 21 and Tuesday, October 22, 2019.

The main event on campus is a community-wide lecture on Tuesday by Saltzman where she will dig into her Pulitzer Center-supported series for PBS NewsHour Weekend that provided a global exploration of how science, climate change, and technology can affect food security. 

While on campus, Saltzman also will speak to Elon students and faculty during a range of classes and informal sessions about her experiences as a multimedia journalist reporting from Africa to Asia on issues from public health to international affairs.

Ann Peters, Pulitzer Center university and community outreach director, joins Saltzman for the visit, exploring with the Elon community the work of the Pulitzer Center and reporting opportunities available to students.
