Conference will deepen knowledge of health issues (#ahcj2010)

A list of expected sessions for Health Journalism 2010 has been released and it includes panels and classes on the most timely health topics.

The conference, April 22-25 in Chicago, will feature sessions about finding and using health data, as well as how to map it, on Thursday. Field trips to see research and clinical work in the Chicago area are also planned for that day.

Panels on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will help reporters who are interested in tracking stimulus spending, understanding medical studies, comparative effectiveness research, conflicts of interest in medical research, vaccines, health reform, veterans’ issues, seniors and nursing homes and much more.

Conference registration for journalists is just $150 ($99 for students) and AHCJ negotiated a hotel rate of $139 at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, the conference hotel. A number of fellowships will be offered as well.

For those of you on Twitter, the hashtag #ahcj2010 has been designated for news about and from the conference. Follow AHCJ_Pia for all of the latest news from AHCJ.
