The plan was for Roanoke (Va.) Times reporter Beth Macy, NF ’10, to follow doctors on an aid trip to Haiti months after an earthquake struck. She was doing that when a cholera outbreak sparked riots across the country and the medical team had to be evacuated. The harrowing experience became part of “Life and Death in the Time of Cholera,” a winner of the Associated Press Managing Editors award for international perspective. [Macy’s trip was funded by the Dart Society with support from the Nieman Foundation.]
