GIJN WEBINAR SERIES — STAYING SAFE: HOW TO REPORT A PANDEMIC

23 April 2020 @ 15:00

In a global crisis like this, journalists play a critical role: they inform the public and they monitor and report abuses of power by officials. But how can they do this when they’re dealing with psychological stress and threats to their own health and safety?

In this webinar, two experts will focus on how to best manage the multiple threats faced by journalists when reporting on COVID-19. Courtney Radsch who previously was a journalist, currently is Head of Advocacy at the Committee to Protect Journalists, which provides support to frontline journalists, including rapid response to those under immediate threat. Dr. Richard Dawood, who runs London’s Fleet Street Clinic, focuses on medical risks, providing preventative care and crisis management for journalists and international media organizations.

This one-hour webinar is free and designed for journalists interested in investigating the pandemic. I will be held on Apr 23, 2020 09:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada).
