Two years ago, a catastrophic 7.0 earthquake rocked Haiti. At least 250,000 people died and 3 million were left without shelter. But for the small island nation, already the poorest in the Western Hemisphere, the crisis was only beginning. The Boston University Program on Crisis Response and Reporting, in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, is pleased to welcome Megan Dhaliwal (COM '12) and Jason Hayes (SPH '12), winners of the BU-Pulitzer Center internship sponsored each year by COM and SPH. Meghan and Jason will discuss their reporting from Haiti about the ravaging cholera epidemic. They will be joined by veteran reporter Jane Regan, who received support for her work on gold mining in Haiti from the Pulitzer Center.
