Tracey Drury, Buffalo, New York, Buffalo Business First:

Favorite panel:
When experts disagree.  “While I don’t know how much I’ll be able to use in my reporting, the ‘when experts disagree’ has been my favorite.”  The panel did a good job of making you think.

Favorite speaker:
Marshall Allen with ProPublica.  “The hospital rating seminar could have been dry and boring but he spiced it up.”

Best tip:
Some of the suggestions on social media were good, particularly the “3 gives and a get” as it relates to Twitter.

Looking forward to:
Deciphering inspection reports.  “There are more than 20 hospitals in the market I cover.  Anything [is helpful] that can make a difference in reports and things to analyze.”
