McGill Global Health Programs has partnered with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting to bring the McGill global health community a workshop on tips and tools for engaging the news media. Alongside global health journalists and communications specialists, participants will learn the skills needed to pitch a story, translate to a lay audience, and make both traditional and nontraditional media work for you.

*This workshop follows the Personal Branding: Making you and your research stand out workshop for postdocs scheduled for April 25th, 2018 which focuses on building an online identity and presenting their research data in an attractive manner. PDFs are invited to attend both sessions.
