NewWays_logo_red_LANLGJA is grateful to the many who made Thursday’s New Ways Los Angeles seminar a success:

The seminar, which provided training to journalists on reporting HIV and AIDS, would not have been possible without the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Diane Anderson-Minshall of The Advocate and Plus Magazine, who also served as moderator, lined up an extraordinary set of panelists for the afternoon’s engaging discussions. We were fortunate to learn so much from Brandon Burciaga of the LA LGBT Center, Bamby Salcedo of TransLatin@ Coalition, Ayako Miyashita of the Williams Institute and UCLA, Elvis Rosales of AIDS Project Los Angeles’ Fuerza Positiva, Karen Ocamb, an Independent Journalist, Gerald Garth of the Black AIDS Institute, Grissel Granados of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Alex Garner of Hornet, Dr. Cleo Manago of Black Men’s Xchange, Tre’vell Anderson of the Los Angeles Times, Mario J. Pérez of the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health, Michelle Levander of the USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism and Boyle Heights Beat, Michael Valle of the California Health and Human Services Open Data Project and Chandi Moore of Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and I Am Cait.

We thank all who attended and if you couldn’t make it, stay tuned as additional information will be coming out this week from the workshop presenters and videos from the various workshop segments will be available online in the coming weeks.
