Journalism Summit on Infectious Disease

11/16/20 - 11/19/20    

Recorded Nov. 16-19, 2020

With more than 220,000 COVID-19 deaths in the United States – and with others deemed “recovered” but left with lingering maladies – health journalists can feel dazed in deciding which stories to pursue. AHCJ is here to help. Join us in the virtual Journalism Summit on Infectious Disease Nov. 16-19. Its series of sessions will be moderated by leading health journalists and will feature world-class experts.

With discussions about data resources, treatments and vaccine development, health workers and vulnerable populations, COVID-19 and influenza sharing a season, and more, you’ll leave recharged with scores of story ideas and resources to get them done.

Registered participants will be able to view recordings of the panels on the same day they take place and will have exclusive access to the sessions for the days and weeks following the summit.

There will be a presentation honoring the winners of the 2019 Awards for Excellence in Health Care Journalism.

NIH Director Francis Collins was a featured speaker.
