Bloomberg School awards Goodermote Humanitarian Award to Soledad O'Brien
Date:11/19/2008

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has awarded CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O'Brien the Goodermote Humanitarian Award for her efforts while reporting on the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina and the 2004 Asian Tsunami. O'Brien was presented with the award at a ceremony at the Bloomberg School of Public Health on November 18.

"Ms. O'Brien has shown the world tragedies of human conflict, natural disasters, chronic and infectious diseases," said Michael J. Klag, MD, MPH, dean of the Bloomberg School of Public Health. "In addition to focusing attention on the people impacted, she has shed a light on how humanitarian efforts can help alleviate suffering and where current efforts have fallen short. Ms. O'Brien has challenged all of us to think and act in ways that offer humanitarian answers to the problems of the moment and the problems of the century, including public health issues."

Since joining CNN in 2003, O'Brien is most recognized for her work with CNN's "Special Investigations Unit" as well as the "Best Political Team on Television." During her tenure, O'Brien has produced in-depth reports on the plight of people coping with disaster including "Children of the Storm," which provided video cameras to young Katrina survivors so they could tell their stories in their own words and images. In addition, O'Brien's reporting included a news making interview with former FEMA chief Michael Brown on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and she actively covered the effects of the 2004 tsunami on the people of Phuket, Thailand. As part of the "Best Political Team on Television," O'Brien was a key player in CNN's coverage of the 2008 presidential election. Most recently, her series "Black in America" explored the current state of Black America 40 years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

O'Brien came to CNN from NBC News in 2003. A graduate of Harvard University, she has earned numerous awards and critical acclaim for humanitarian efforts as well as for excellence in journalism. O'Brien is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
