High school student journalists share
stories about health and wellness

Students participating in the 2018 Journalism in July Workshop on July 22-29 at the University of Texas at El Paso took their pens, notebooks and cameras to the streets of El Segundo Barrio to get a look at the stories regarding health from the heart of our city. The students began their training on the UT El Paso campus with lectures and demonstrations on traditional newsgathering and new multimedia skills taught by professors and area news professionals. Then they went into field to apply their new skills in professional news reporting followed by video editing and web posting. See a collection of their stories in the section below.
