IU School of Journalism associate professor Jim Kelly will talk about his course which took students to Kenya last summer to report on HIV/AIDS at the next meeting of the Bloomington Press Club at noon Nov. 22 at the State Room East in the Indiana Memorial Union. The State Room East is on the second floor, one above the Tudor Room.
Kelly, who also has led workshops for south Asian journalists seeking ways to report on the epidemic, devised and led the course in June. Students spent time in the classroom reading and discussing media and HIV/AIDS, then traveled to Eldoret and Nairobi to collaborate with students at Moi University in newsgathering in local communities.
Lunch will be your choice of chicken bistro grill or grilled portobello sandwiches, each with side salad, dessert and drinks for $13.
Make your reservation for the meeting and lunch with treasurer Sherry Rouse, firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Nov. 17.
