Description

Overdoses are killing more Americans each year than U.S. military deaths during the Vietnam War, yet there are only a handful of reporters on the opioid beat. Hear from reporters who are dedicated to covering the epidemic from multiple angles as they share the stories behind articles they’ve written and tips on how to cover this national crisis. Learn how to use data to show the scope of the epidemic, how to investigate pharmaceutical companies making painkillers, how to create empathy for a disease that is incredibly stigmatized, and how to navigate source-reporter relationships with active drug users and dealers.
