Dear listeners,

In an age where misinformation and disinformation are valid threats to global health, reliable and trustworthy journalism is essential. In this episode, I speak with two health journalists who may tell the same story in different ways to serve their respective audiences. Stephanie Nolen, the global health reporter for The New York Times, has reported from more than 80 countries around the world. Paul Adepoju is a Nigeria-based freelance health journalist and scientist who regularly reports for top media and science outlets such as Nature, The Lancet, Devex and CNN. He is also the community manager of the Global Health Crisis Forum, which is part of the International Center for Journalists.

I always enjoy receiving your feedback. Feel free to get in touch and let me know what you like or don't like about our podcast and any suggestions for topics you would like to hear more about.
