The National Story in your Backyard: A Conversation with Journalist Marisa Kwiatkowski

Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019, 3:30 p.m. Miron Special Events Room
303 Newhouse 1

Marisa Kwiatkowski’s reporting revealed decades of sexual abuse at USA Gymnastics (which oversees the Olympic team), and that the organization failed to report or prevent the abuse. Her investigation led directly to the case against Dr. Larry Nassar, the team’s doctor based at Michigan State University; he was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison. Ultimately, more than 360 young athletes testified, and the continuing fallout includes fired executives and criminal charges against a university dean and president.
