FLORENCE, Italy – The Italian chapter of AHCJ actively contributed to the success of a two-day meeting organized by Science Writers in Italy in the wonderful Skeletons’ room of the Museum of Natural History in Florence and in Galileo Galilei’s charming Villa il Gioiello.

Some 35 science and health reporters and editors came from all over Italy on Feb. 15 and 16 to discuss continuing education, the role of international networking and the challenges of making a living as a freelancer. Health data, which has only started becoming available to Italian journalists in recent years, was a key focus of the workshop, and will be the focus of courses for journalists being planned in the coming months, again with the involvement of the Italian chapter of AHCJ.
