The Carter Center in partnership with the Universidad de La Sabana awarded two annual fellowships to teams of local journalists to investigate and produce a comprehensive project unveiling mental health issues in Colombia. The project in Colombia has been led by Víctor García, director of the Master’s Program in Digital Communication and Journalism from the Communications faculty, and Dr.Yahira Guzmán, director of the Mental Health Department in the School of Medicine.
The fellows will travel to Atlanta to attend the Carter Center’s Fellowship Symposium from September 9-11, 2013. The Universidad de La Sabana also put on training in early August.
