The organization’s annual conference is slated for May 2-5, 2019, at the Hilton Baltimore. Serving as the local host team this year will be Johns Hopkins University, including its Bloomberg School of Public Health and School of Nursing, and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
The conference, which usually draws 700-800 attendees, will feature three and a half days of workshops, panels, roundtables and field trips covering the latest topics in medical science, health policy, public health, medical education, consumer health and the business of health care. Sessions focus on the special needs of reporters, editors and producers as they attempt to cover these topics for their audiences.
The conference will include the annual luncheon for the Awards for Excellence in Health Care Journalism, the annual Freelancer PitchFest, and a membership meeting, as well as receptions and other meals included in the registration fee. The Hilton Baltimore is located in the lively Inner Harbor area and overlooks Camden Yards, the home of the Baltimore Orioles.
