Guilford College tackles the issue of Ebola when journalist Brian Castner and documentary photographer Cheryl Hatch discuss their Pulitzer Center-supported reporting during a two-day visit to campus. Rather than simply considering the number of deaths, the journalists examined the efforts by local communities and the U.S. military to try to contain the spread of Ebola in Liberia. The main talk is set for Thursday, March 26.

Guilford College is the final stop in Castner and Hatch's weeklong visit to Triad Campus Consortium partners, which also include Wake Forest University and High Point University. Castner and Hatch also discuss how they adapted to an ever-changing story while they were in Liberia for their Pulitzer Center-supported project.

Castner also is the author of "The Long Walk" and a former explosive ordnance disposal officer in the U.S. Air Force (1999 to 2007). Hatch is an independent journalist and documentary photographer and currently a visiting professor at Allegheny College.
