Covering COVID-19: Award-winning health journalist André Picard on the pandemic
April 23, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
When Globe and Mail columnist André Picard speaks, Canadians pay attention. He is our country’s pre-eminent health journalist, named Canada’s first “Public Health Hero” in 2011 by the Canadian Public Health Association. In early March, when the number of COVID-19 cases in Canada was just beginning to register, Picard was one of the first calling for strong social distancing measures, with a clear call to “Shut it Down.” Join this award-winning journalist in conversation with Anna Maria Tremonti, host of the CBC podcast More, for an insightful discussion about how he reports with authority on the coronavirus and the vital information Canadians need to stay safe and healthy at a time when misinformation abounds.
