Global Health Issues Allow For Reporting On Broad Spectrum Of Challenges, Journalists Say At Seminar

GlobalPost’s “Global Pulse” blog describes a December seminar, titled “Global Health and Story Telling in the Digital Age” and sponsored by GlobalPost and the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard, at which “journalists discussed challenges they faced in covering global health during a time of shrinking budgets and within an industry struggling to balance hard-hitting coverage with the need to continually update websites and attract readers.” According to the blog, “Global health reporting can and should be a ‘window’ into addressing the spectrum of challenges facing the world, from political to economic and scientific, journalists said” (Kriel, 12/28).
