Event description

Description

Our next Key Correspondents' workshop for the 2019 Global Health Exchange Key Correspondents' team takes place on September 11, in Beaux Lane House, RCSI. It is being facilitated by Dr. Steve MacDonald working with the Irish Forum for Global Health.

This workshop will empower new members of the Key Correspondents' team to report on international conferences through training in essential writing skills. Tailoring of content and messages for different channels including social media will also be covered. The Key Correspondents will help bring the 2019 Global Health Exchange to an international audience.

Steve will work with participants to give them an understanding of the skills required to write original and thought-provoking pieces when reporting on global health conferences, using their own professional backgrounds as the pivotal starting point.

Read some sample news reports from our existing team of Key Correspondents and learn more about our Student Outreach Group and how you can get involved.
