Four distinguished graduates of the M.S. Stabile program - Amy Brittain, Caroline Chen, Derek Kravitz, and Nick Nehamas - who are at the forefront of accountability reporting on the pandemic will talk about their work with Stabile Program Director and Dean of Academic Affairs Sheila Coronel. The short bios below have links to these journalists' stories that attendees may want to read in advance.

Amy Brittain ('10 M.S. Stabile), is a reporter for The Washington Post's investigative team, and recently exposed the secrecy and inflated claims of the Trump administration's Project Airbridge, designed to bring protective equipment to pandemic hotspots. She was part of the Pulitzer Prize-winning team that reported on fatal police shootings around the country. 

Caroline Chen ('13 M.S. Stabile), is a health reporter for ProPublica, where she is on the forefront of the coronavirus coverage. Chen has covered pandemics before and last month summed up, what we've learned from the 100,000 who have died in the U.S.  This year, she won the Livingston Award for Young Journalists.

Derek Kravitz ('13 M.S. Stabile), formerly ProPublica's research director,  built the Covid-19
FOIA Repository and is also helping THE CITY memorialize  New York City's 21,000 coronavirus dead. Many stories have come out of the FOIA repository, including this one on meatpacking plants that Kravitz co-wrote for The New York Times.

Nick Nehamas ('14 M.S. Stabile) is an investigative reporter at The Miami Herald and part of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for the Panama Papers. He has written about offshore accounts, corruption, and lately, how Florida has responded to the pandemic and also how cruise ships sailed on despite the coronavirus.
