Following the Science: Health and Science Reporting From Inside a Crisis

The Covid-19 pandemic has made all of us follow science and heath reports like never before, reinforcing the importance of the work that health and science reporters do.

Meet some of the people behind the headlines, sharing their experience of covering the health and science beat during a global pandemic: from misinformation to reliable sources, from scientific and government reports to witnessing human resilience and tragedy.

We thank The Association of British Science Writers and The European Federation for Science Journalism for helping us with organising this talk.
