Tue., Oct. 24, 2023, 1 – 1:30 p.m.

It isn’t enough to write about race and health separately: to tell the whole story, journalists must explore the many complex ways in which race, racism, and health intersect. In this fireside chat, renowned journalists Akilah Johnson of The Washington Post and Amber Payne of The Emancipator take your questions about the opportunities and challenges of reporting on race and health equity. How can journalists combat misinformation and misconceptions about health disparities? What can the public health community learn from journalists about communicating with the public? What stories about race and health are still going untold? Bring your questions.

An on-demand video will be posted after the event.
