More than 50 million people live with dementia worldwide – and there is no effective treatment for it, even as researchers continue to pursue new pathways. Two experts will bring journalists up to speed on what’s new and what’s next in understanding and combating dementia in its many forms. Speakers:
Support for this webinar comes from AARP.
A team of journalists from The Washington Post will be honored with the National Press Foundation’s Innovative Storytelling Award for a multimedia project on the 1968 riots. The winning journalists are Lauren Tierney, Ann Gerhart, Nick Kirkpatrick, Katie Mettler, Marc Fisher, Danielle Rindler, Armand Emamdjomeh and Monica Norton. NPF judges said: “In its examination of the 1968 riots, The Washington Post let the visuals – videos, photos, documents, maps – take center stage. They created a seamless, well-researched journey for the reader, using technology in service of the story. This is a great model for any local newsroom to bring historical events to life.”
Christopher Flavelle, a reporter for Bloomberg News, has won the National Press Foundation’s Feddie Reporting Award for his reporting on the impact of federal flood insurance policy on local communities. NPF judges said: “Christopher Flavelle of Bloomberg News provided an eye-opening investigation into flaws in so-called managed retreat in federal flood insurance practices. The National Flood Insurance Program is a case study of federal policy that simply doesn’t work.”
