Deputy editor of the Global Post, Marissa Miley, joined a panel discussion about “the story behind the story” for global health reporting at the annual meeting of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health.
"It’s not often I get the chance to step outside of my day-to-day role as journalist and editor to reflect on how I cover global health—or to connect with those who are making similar editorial decisions every day. But participating in the panel, I was able to do just that.
Joining me for the discussion were New York Times global health correspondent McNeil, NPR senior health editor Joe Neel, and Kaiser Family Foundation director of global health and HIV policy Jen Kates. The conference was organized by CUGH, a coalition of universities seeking to share expertise and best practices in order to better address global health problems.
Each panelist was asked to talk about a few global health stories we have covered, including how we chose and reported them."
