Ebola: Fact Checking Myths that Kill

The challenges of fact-checking and collecting data in Africa ¿ A workshop on how journalists at Africa Check deal with the challenge of lack of transparency and limited data in many African countries. Finding accurate data is often a slow, frustrating and arduous process. But the fact-checkers can play a vital role in pointing out the weaknesses, campaigning for better data and pushing back against government bureaucracies that obfuscate and obstruct. Monday, March 30, Noon-1:15 p.m.. This event will take place in Rubenstein 149
