Johns Hopkins-Pulitzer Global Health Reporting Fellowship

Julianna Deutscher

Julianna Deutscher, MD, has been selected as the 2024 Bloomberg School-Pulitzer Center Global Health Reporting Fellow. Deutscher, an MPH student at the Bloomberg School of Public Health and a Global Emergency Medicine fellow at Queen’s University, will travel to Boa Vista and Pacaraima, Brazil, to share the stories of Venezuelan survivors of human trafficking and report on programs in Brazil that have improved the lives of thousands of Venezuelan migrants. Congratulations, Julianna!

The Johns Hopkins-Pulitzer Global Health Reporting Fellowship is a unique opportunity for Bloomberg School students to do in-depth reporting on a global health issue of their choice and gain a clearer understanding of the media’s role in shaping the global health conversation.

The $5,000 fellowship supports training with journalists from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington, D.C., and covers the cost of in-country reporting, travel, and living expenses. The Center provides technical and editorial support through the planning, reporting and writing/production phases of the fellowship.

The Global Health Reporting Fellowship supports projects that focus on public health issues of global importance that have been underreported or neglected by mainstream media in the U.S. 

Any Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health degree student is eligible to apply (including May 2024 graduates). 

Working with the Pulitzer Center, the selected fellows will produce print and online stories, videos, photojournalism, or work for other media platforms, depending on the project. The Pulitzer Center and the Bloomberg School work with the fellow(s) to place their work in media outlets.
