Tracking Malaria in Africa

Amy Maxmen is a Brooklyn-based science journalist and a 2013 fellow at the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting. She covers malaria, evolution, science policy and more for Nature, Science News, Al Jazeera and other media outlets. This lecture will draw upon Maxmen's reporting project for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, "West Africa: Malaria Prevention at the Cost of Drug Resistance," which tracks the race against resistance in several African nations as doctors begin preemptively treating children for malaria after positive results from clinical trials.


This lecture is free and open to the public.
