The 2014 O’Brien Fellowship conference featured the work of our 2013-14 O’Brien Fellows Hal Bernton of The Seattle Times, Dan Egan of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Lillian Thomas of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Bernton’s work resulted in a series of stories focusing on the battle to reduce carbon emissions in Wisconsin, across America and in China. Egan’s reporting extended his already years’ long coverage on threats to the Great Lakes. Thomas produced national and local reporting related to how poverty and health intersect. (Both the Post-Gazette and Journal Sentinel published her work in their print and online editions.)

The conference aimed to convene people affected by or responsible for the related systems and policies in an attempt to seek solutions for providing poor patients the best possible care, and stringent regulations to curb carbon emissions and threats to the lakes.
