Aleksandra Sagan and Laura Kane are the 2018 recipients of annual R. James Travers Foreign Corresponding Fellowship

Aleksandra Sagan and Laura Kane traveled to India and South Africa to examine the impact of antimicrobial resistance and innovative approaches to combating an impending global crisis.

Sagan is a Vancouver-based business reporter for The Canadian Press, covering the food and beverage industries, retail and technology. She’s dug into why some of the country’s egg producers shun free-range farms, the secretive process of cryptojacking, the growing do-it-yourself mortician movement and the ongoing legal battle between Tim Hortons and its franchisees – among many other stories.

Kane is also a journalist with The Canadian Press in Vancouver. She covers a wide range of issues, including gender, sexual violence, Indigenous rights, child welfare, drug policy, housing and the environment. In 2016, she was nominated for best news reporting at the Jack Webster Awards, which honour excellence in B.C. journalism.
