Lecture to Discuss UK’s Work Fighting HIV and AIDS in Zambia

Faculty and staff in UK’s School of Journalism and Telecommunications are fighting HIV and AIDS in Zambia.

Beth Barnes, director of the School of Journalism and Telecommunications, will discuss the school’s partnership with a media training organization in Zambia to raise the standard of reporting and use journalistic techniques to provide information on HIV and AIDS. The event will take place:

Friday, April 18, 2014
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
UK Chandler Hospital, Pav. A Auditorium

“This presentation will outline the main elements of the PEPFAR-funded partnership, including work with community radio stations and community health workers, a ‘Newspaper in Education’ project in secondary schools, and media training on branding, advertising and marketing,” said Barnes.

The talk is part of the Global Health Lecture Series, which encourages the UK community to foster the development of global health research locally and with partner institutions.

The lecture series is hosted by UK’s Global Health Initiative, which is focused on advancing research, educational programs and service learning for our faculty and students, with the goal of improving the health of people throughout the world and promoting health equity.
