When Disaster Strikes: Reporting and Responding is an international conference that will explore the collaboration and tension between journalists and public health workers at times of crisis. The event, featuring a keynote speech by NBC’s Kerry Sanders, will mark the first annual collaboration of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and Boston University’s Center for Global Health and Development, School of Public Health and College of Communication. A wide range of experts from the fields of global health, NGOs and journalism, as well as citizens and volunteers, will focus on the many layers of crisis in post-earthquake Haiti, to establish strategies for journalists and aid workers to function collaboratively.
The College of Communication is hosting a lecture by Lauren Zalaznick, Chairman of the NBC Universal Entertainment & Digital Networks and Integrated Media. One of Fortune’s “50 Most Powerful Women,” Zalaznick will discuss how she went from indie producer to corporate executive with chefs, housewives and celeb moms today from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM in the SMG Executive Dining Room (4th Floor). The event is free and open to the public.
