On Thursday, April 16, 2020, at 2 pm ET, please join us for the second event of our Talks @ Pulitzer Science and Health Series as Jon Cohen, a Pulitzer Center grantee and science journalist, discusses his reporting on the race to find a vaccine against coronavirus. 

Cohen is a senior correspondent with Science, and the magazine's COVID-19 reporting is supported by the Pulitzer Center. His work is incorporated in the "The Science of COVID-19" project, which explores the nature of the coronavirus, the course of the disease, potential treatments and vaccines, the patterns of spread around the world, and impacts on society.

Cohen is a widely-published magazine writer and author of four nonfiction books on scientific topics. He specializes in biomedicine, and is widely known for his coverage of epidemics (HIV/AIDS, COVID-19, Ebola, influenza), immunology, vaccines, and global health. 

Registration required for this free webinar. Sign up today! 

Public health experts, university faculty and students, and individuals involved with community organizations are especially encouraged to join the session. It is the second in a two-month-long series the Pulitzer Center will organize with public health journalists and experts.
