The Communication Program through the assistance of alumni led the Journalism in time of pandemic webinar.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped many societal institutions — journalism included. The new dynamics of the fourth estate were discussed with seasoned Kapampangan journalist, Justine Dizon.
Dizon shared the important role the press plays, reporting the pandemic through the lens of public health, disinformation in the time of uncertainty, and the safety protocols for the journalist.
The webinar was held last August 29 and was the first of the lined-up projects of the program in partnership with the alumni.
