March 2019 … You’re invited to a book-launch celebration and fundraiser marking publication of Leading Healthy Change In Our Communities 2019, the eighth book in a series by elementary and middle school journalists engaged in the Healthy NewsWorks program.

The event will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, at the Merion Tribute House, 625 Hazelhurst Avenue, Merion Station, PA 19066. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Ana Diez Roux, Dean and Distinguished University Professor of Epidemiology at the Dornsife School of Public Health at Drexel University and a 2015 Healthy NewsWorks Health Leader.

You’ll hear from some of the student journalists who spoke with Philadelphia-area health leaders about the ways they’re helping to make our communities healthier and safer. You’ll receive a copy of the book, be able to have it signed by student authors, meet community health leaders, and see what our health publications are accomplishing.
