Join the Pulitzer Center on November 17, 2023, at 9:00am EST for a discussion about public health storytelling. Topics include how their work has changed since the COVID-19 pandemic, definitions of public health and why they matter, what it is like to follow protracted public health issues after the headlines, engaging vulnerable sources, and how to make narrative stories more impactful.
The panelists, all Pulitzer Center grantees, will also speak about their Center-supported projects, which examine environment, identity, and governance as public health issues.
