May 2020 … Thank you to everyone who attended, participated in, and supported our first-ever virtual event on May 20.
Creating the Book Reveal production, which we did in a little more than seven weeks, involved many dedicated people—from our amazing student journalists and their supportive families and teachers to the experts they interviewed. We leaned heavily on the talents and expertise of our event committee which was comprised of members of the Healthy NewsWorks Board and our Community Advisory Board. We also lassoed the help of experienced videographers for the production.
Of course, we needed an audience, too. We appreciate everyone who tuned in for the live-streaming of the Book Reveal and all of those who will view it via the Healthy NewsWorks website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.
It goes without saying that none of this would be possible without our community partners and supporters. We appreciate every donation that is made to Healthy NewsWorks. (Our text-to-give feature will remain live for a while: To donate, text HEALTHY to 243725).
The coronavirus pandemic catapulted Healthy NewsWorks into video and digital media—an area where we already had started to make inroads. In the years ahead, we will continue to ground our youth reporters in fact-based, relevant health journalism that they can share with their families, schools, and communities—in print, online, and via video. So stay tuned! And thank you.
—Marian Uhlman, Executive Director
