School of Public Health of HKUMed and Journalism and Media Studies Centre are going to invite journalists covering the COVID-19 pandemic to join a public health workshop for infectious diseases. This workshop is a pilot programme and part of an initiative to enable journalists to develop greater insight related to public health and science. The upcoming kick-off session will address the basics of infectious diseases, which is highly relevant for COVID-19 and other infectious disease outbreaks.
The workshop will be held via Zoom, with a Q&A session with reporters after short presentations by experts at HKU. We welcome members of the public to join us on JMSC YouTube channel. You can watch it live on March 31st; the video of the entire workshop will also be uploaded afterwards.
