Robert Laxalt Distinguished Writer Program: Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink to be honored Monday, Feb. 9
As a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and medical doctor, Sheri Fink has investigated the ethical challenges of medical care that arise during natural catastrophes, epidemics and times of war. Most recently, her work has taken her to a new ground zero, as she spent weeks reporting on the Ebola epidemic from Liberia for the New York Times. Through the Robert Laxalt Distinguished Writer Program, the University of Nevada, Reno and Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism will recognize Fink’s journalistic contributions, and she will share her experiences at two free, public events hosted in partnership with Nevada Humanities and the Renown Health Foundation on Monday, Feb. 9. Select books will be available for purchase and signing at both events.
