How it feels to interview an expert
March 25, 2020

March 2020 … Ava is an 8-year-old health reporter at Whitehall Elementary School. Her newspaper team talked with a Drexel University public health professor about the coronavirus on March 24.

“At first I was really shy and I was not sure what to do,” she wrote about the interview with Dr. James Buehler, a professor of health management and policy. “When we got further in the meeting, I felt better. … I felt confident to ask all my questions. It felt amazing. I felt we all did a very good job. … Now I feel brave. I wish we could do it again some time. It was a cool experience on Zoom.” (Zoom is a video conferencing tool.)
