This past summer, 2 BU students received fellowships with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. Lusha Chen (COM) travelled to Myanmar to report on bride trafficking to China, and Kerstin Egenhofer (SPH) travelled to Malawi to report on the success of cash transfers in improving the wellbeing of the poorest households. And 8 BU students representing COM, SPH, and CAS traveled to Kenya to collaborate with Kenyan students to tell stories of foreign development assistance as part of the PamojaTogether Student-Powered Foreign Aid News Network. Come hear about their reporting adventures, the intersection of public health and journalism, and learn how you can apply for a 2014 Pulitzer Fellowship.This event is brought to you by the BU Center for Global Health & Development, College of Communication, & Department of International Health at the School of Public Health, as part of International Education Week, a university-wide celebration of BU's global engagement.
