IIJ Delegation at Health & Development Comm. Conference in Kenya

In order to improve health communication in Africa, several institutions, including the Institute for International Journalism (IIJ) at Ohio University, organized the 2011 International Health and Development Communication Conference in Nairobi, Kenya. The IIJ delegation held training workshops and presentations at the conference.

Given the inconsistency between the generation and dissemination of health information, the conference aims to provide an efficient collaboration between health practitioners, both those who have experience in health and journalism and those who have the ability to disseminate that expertise.

Two SUSI scholars will present research papers at AEJMC National Convention

For the first time, Dr. Yusuf Kalyango, the director of the Institute for International Journalism , encouraged all of the scholars to submit original research papers to the conference. Drs. Anne Cooper-Chen, Guido Stempel and Yusuf Kalyango as well as doctoral student Ed Simpson edited eight research papers in March.

These staff members had three weeks to edit each paper and provide the proper feedback to the author in order for the author to make the appropriate corrections before the April 1 deadline. After reading and editing those papers, they advised two scholars not to submit to the conference. Therefore, three of the six papers submitted were accepted for presentation.
