New York Times Journalist Gina Kolata to Discuss Status of Coronavirus Vaccine, Nov. 12

The Open VISIONS Forum (OVF) has partnered with the Egan School to welcome Gina Kolata for “Covid-19 Vaccination: How and When Will the U.S. Get It? A Discussion of the State of the Coronavirus Vaccination."

The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts and the Marion Peckham Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies will welcome Gina Kolata for a virtual OVF presentation: “Covid-19 Vaccination: How and When Will the U.S. Get It? A Discussion of the State of the Coronavirus Vaccination” on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 5 p.m.

Journalist Gina Kolata reports on science and medicine for The New York Times. With an educational background in molecular biology and applied mathematics, her extensively researched articles on topics including stem cell therapies, new cancer treatments, exercise, and cloning have influenced public policy and upended conventional wisdom. Kolata has also written six books, the most recent being Mercies in Disguise: A Story of Hope.

Kolata has been recognized twice as a Pulitzer Prize-finalist for Times articles: in 2000 for investigative reporting, and in 2010 for explanatory journalism. Her writing earned her awards in 2010 from the Silurian Society for a series about the war on cancer, and from the Associated Press Sports Editors for reporting on the Caster Semenya intersex controversy at the World Track Championships. She holds an honorary doctorate from Bowdoin College and a Distinguished Alumna award from the University of Maryland.

“This year, we are thrilled to welcome Gina Kolata to the Egan School Lecture Series, which was again made possible with generous support from the McKeen Fund. Gina is the author of six powerful books, including Mercies in Disguise. She is a renowned writer of front-page New York Times stories on healthcare issues with a powerful impact on public policy and action,” said Meredith Kazer, professor and dean of the Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies.
