But for 13-year-old Jude Musa in Nigeria, it resulted in a debilitating waterborne infection called schistosomiasis, or “snail fever.” Watch this video to learn what we are doing to prevent and control a painful disease so that children may reach their full potential.

Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Journalism Fellow Takes Reporting to a New Level

Newspaper reporter Jaclyn Cosgrove wanted to dig deeper into mental health issues, but lacked the tools to do it well. "I felt like I was digging with a shovel, and The Carter Center gave me a backhoe," said Cosgrove, a 2015-16 Fellow who works at The Oklahoman in Oklahoma City. Watch her explain how the fellowship enabled her to report stories that have caught the eye of state government officials.

Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Journalism Fellow Tackles Stigma in Colombia

Carter Center fellow Fernanda Sanchez Jaramillo was recently named Journalist of the Month at the International Center for Journalists (ICJ). The Carter Center fellowship “allowed me to devote one year of my professional life to a subject that I am passionate about, and reminded me of the critical role we play as journalists fighting stigma by reporting in an accurate and ethical way about mental health issues,” she said. Congratulations, Fernanda!
