Center for Science & Common Good: Journalist Michael Vitez

Storytelling Is Our Salvation:
My life as a journalist and how I came to love medical narratives

A winner of the 1997 Pulitzer Prize for his series of medical narratives, Life Choices, Mike Vitez has been a staff writer at The Philadelphia Inquirer since 1985. In a world overrun with facts, web sites, cable channels, press releases and noise, Michael believes the best way to reach people is through stories.

The Center for Science and the Common Good at Ursinus College provides opportunities for all Ursinus students to consider the impact of science on the common good and to learn to better communicate scientific research to the public. It is funded by a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
