As a follow to last month’s two-day symposium to educate journalists on how to uncover local stories on the impacts of the current economic crisis on the mental health of North American families and their communities, Dr. Nancy Molitor of Northwestern University will conduct a webinar August 16 at 2 p.m.
The Associated Press Media Editors and the Local Media Foundation were awarded a McCormick Foundation grant to conduct the symposium in Chicago for reporters and editors.
Molitor is a clinical psychologist and assistant professor of clinical psychiatry and behavioral science at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine. She is also the public education coordinator for the American Psychological Association and writes and speaks about society’s effect on the mental health of all Americans.
The webinar cost is only $9.95, with the balance of the normal $29.95 charge funded through the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
