PBS NewsHour reporter explains ‘Under-Told Stories’ Project at Saint Mary’s event

WINONA, Minn. — Fred de Sam Lazaro, director and reporter for PBS NewsHour’s program “Under-Told Stories,” spoke at Saint Mary’s University Tuesday during the President’s Roundtable breakfast. The Under-Told Stories Project is sponsored by Saint Mary’s and hosted by the Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership at SMU’s Twin Cities campus.

The Under-Told Stories Project produces reports on health, poverty, and environmental and economic issues from the most remote and underdeveloped locations in the world. De Sam Lazaro and Nicole See, the show’s producer, are working to raise awareness of the local ramifications of global issues. UTS activities and staff also give Saint Mary’s students exposure to hands-on experiences in developing regions of the world.
