Hazelwood can strike anywhere

For 25 years, Hazelwood has been spreading. It doesn't just hurt journalists — anyone can be infected. It afflicts artists, musicians, actors — even graduation speakers.

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms include an inability to speak freely. In some cases, victims are paralyzed by intimidation. 

Hazelwood is highly contagious

Hazelwood started with high school kids, but it hasn't stopped there. Once a school is infected, it goes viral.
