The New York State Health Foundation is hosting a panel discussion via Zoom with Sebastian Junger, journalist, author and filmmaker; Molly Carr, executive director, Jewish Family Services of Western New York; and Derek Coy, New York State Health’s veterans health officer, about the resettlement of Afghan evacuees, trauma and its lingering effects, their need for health and mental health services.

OPC member Brian Byrd, senior program officer for the New York State Health Foundation, will moderate.

RSVP Here >>

In August 2021, U.S. armed forces completed their withdrawal from Afghanistan to officially end the war, leaving behind a humanitarian crisis. More than 120,000 Afghans have fled the country and a total of 75,000 Afghan evacuees are expected to arrive in the United States—with 1,300 expected to be resettled in New York State.

Years of war and conflict take an enormous toll on an individual’s physical and mental health. According to the International Red Cross, people living in conflict-affected areas are three times more likely to experience mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Providing Afghan refugees the health and mental health services they need as part of their resettlement will be a massive and complex undertaking. Resettlement agencies must now simultaneously rebuild their organizational capacity after years of disinvestment, navigate complex bureaucratic systems, and deliver crucial services to incoming refugees.

The 60-minute event will feature a panel discussion followed by audience Q&A.

Journalism Contests

The McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism

September 30, 2021
_

Do you -- or a reporter you know -- have a great idea for high-impact investigative or enterprise story that "Follows the Money," but few resources to take it on?

If so, the McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism, an initiative of the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York, would like to hear from you. The Fellowships provide experienced journalists with the funds and editorial support needed to produce high-impact stories on critical issues related to the US economy, business or finance.

The upcoming deadline to apply is September 30, 2021 – please note that this is a change from our earlier announced fall deadline. 

  • Each Fellow receives a grant of up to $15,000
  • Fellowships are open to both freelance and staff journalists with at least five years professional journalism experience
  • Applications accepted from both reporters and editors
  • Applications in any type of media — print, audio, video and digital — will be considered

Previous McGraw Fellows have explored a wide variety of topics — and you don’t need to be a business reporter to apply. Many have been generalists, or follow beats such as health care or the environment. Others have focused on issues such as economic justice or corporate accountability. Here are some examples of their work:

If you’d like to join them, you’ll find more information, an FAQ, and the application at www.mcgrawcenter.org. If you have further questions, you can contact us at mcgrawcenter@journalism.cuny.edu. Applications are accepted twice a year. Fall 2021 Fellowships are due September 30, 2021. Spring  2022 applications will be due March 31, 2022.

The McGraw Center for Business Journalism was established at the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY in 2014 by the family of the late Harold W. McGraw, Jr., former chairman and CEO of McGraw-Hill and long-time publisher of BusinessWeek magazine. The Center is dedicated to enhancing the depth and quality of business and economic news coverage through training, student scholarships and support for veteran journalists.

The Newmark Graduate School of Journalism in midtown Manhattan is the only publicly supported graduate journalism school in the Northeast. Led by Dean Sarah Bartlett, the School offers three 16 month Master’s degree programs: an M.A. in Journalism, Spanish Language Journalism, or Social Journalism.
