Covering Ebola


Join the OPC and New York University for a panel Feb. 3 with OPC Board of Governors member Paul Moakley on how to cover Ebola. Moakley, Time magazine’s Deputy Director of Photography, visited Liberia in November 2014 to direct photography of people affected by Ebola there. The event is hosted by former OPC President Alexis Gelber and will be held at NYU’s Center for Global Affairs. 

During his visit to Libera, Moakley met with doctors and nurses, members of burial teams, and janitors. Shortly afterward, Time named the Ebola Fighters as its Person of the Year. Moakley will discuss the role of the media in fighting misinformation and panic in the Ebola epidemic, and what this means for media coverage of global health crises. 

Seating is available on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Preregistration does not guarantee entry.
