News Reporting on COVID-19

The Academy relies on individual and organizational partners to support us in the fight against COVID-19. You can help us in these efforts by clicking here to make a gift today.


How do journalists report in a world of social distancing? How do they cope with threats to their personal safety? How do they manage the stresses of their challenging jobs as well as the everyday disruptions we all are facing? How do generalists get up to speed on the science of COVID-19? How do these reporters meet the challenge of communicating the science of COVID-19 to general audiences?

We have panel of journalists across a broad range of news organizations: Laura Helmuth, the new Editor-in-Chief of Scientific American, Blayne Alexander, an Atlanta-based correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC, Ashlee Rezin Garcia, a photojournalist with the Chicago Sun-Times, and Sarah Parvini, who covers demographics and diverse communities for the Los Angeles Times. These journalists will discuss how they stay safe on the COVID-19 beat and challenges in reporting the science of COVID-19. This 75-minute discussion will include Q&A with our on-line audience.
