Register now for our annual celebration

March 2021…Registration is open for Healthy NewsWorks’ Annual Celebration! This year’s virtual event is scheduled for Wednesday, May 26, 2021, at 5:30 p.m., Eastern time.

Vernon Odom, who was a reporter for 6abc Action News in Philadelphia for 42 years, will host.

During the event, Healthy NewsWorks elementary and middle school student journalists will address the theme, “Doing the Undoable: What we endured, learned, and accomplished during COVID-19.”

The student reporters will share first-hand accounts of the pandemic and present interviews with community leaders ranging from front-line healthcare workers to an international vaccine expert.

Plus, we’ll unveil our 10th student-written and -illustrated book, Leading Healthy Change In Our Communities 2021: Doing the Undoable.

Registration is free! However, as a nonprofit organization whose finances rely on community support, Healthy NewsWorks would be grateful if you could make a donation as part of your registration.
