Our events, onsite and online, help to share Bloomberg School knowledge in compelling ways and in partnership with a robust network of collaborators.
Give It Your Best Shot: Reaching the Vaccine-Hesitant Young
Nearly one in four young people is hesitant about COVID-19 vaccination, putting them at risk for severe disease. How can public health officials and journalists reach adolescents and young people with messages that resonate? In our online event on Thursday, October 14, the Pulitzer Center and the Bloomberg School convened journalists from the CNN/BBC documentary Race for the Vaccine and public health experts to explore opportunities and pitfalls in this pandemic communication challenge.
The speakers also shared examples of successful communication to young people from news articles, documentaries, and social media. Two Bloomberg School graduate students led the post-discussion Q&A. A recording will be posted soon.

We Stand With Public Health
They came to public health committed to save lives. They are leaving in the wake of attacks, harassment, and even death threats. More than 180 state and local public health officials have left their jobs in less than a year, depleting and stymying our public health system just when we need it most.
