About this Event

This Knight Center webinar, which will take place on Friday, January 29, from 9 a.m to 12 p.m. Central Standard Time, will be held in partnership with UNESCO and the World Health Organization. The webinar will be broken into three, one-hour panels, each of which will be moderated by renowned health and science journalist Maryn McKenna.

• From 9 to 10 a.m. CST, we’ll hear from five journalists who will share their experiences covering vaccines internationally. They’ll discuss what constitutes good vaccine coverage and will share related best practices. Speakers include science journalists Andre Biernath from Brazil, Federico Kukso from Argentina, Kai Kupferschmidt from Germany, and Yves Sciama from France.

• From 10 to 11 a.m. CST, we’ll explore key scientific developments behind the vaccines, with an eye toward helping journalists understand the global significance of these developments. Speakers include the World Health Organization’s Kate O’Brien, immunologist Purvi Parikh, and coronavirologist Angela Rasmussen.

• From 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. CST, we’ll examine the logistical challenges of vaccine distribution internationally, including socioeconomic challenges. This panel will also explore misinformation and disinformation as it relates to the vaccines. Panelists include Josh Michaud from the Kaiser Family Foundation and Scott Ratzan from CUNY’s School of Public Health.
