Because healthy habits should apply to media engagement too, we're on a mission to make media literacy a household concept. This fall, we're excited to be working with HealthCorps to incorporate media literacy lessons into their classes all across America.  

Our ramp-up to Media Literacy Week includes:

Thursday, November 1

Alicia Haywood presents @ 
Journalism Education Association Conference in Chicago

Friday, November 2 @ 2pmET
