Journalism Workshop on Evidence-Based Medicine
10/29/15 - 10/30/15 Washington, DC
Journalists can always dig deeper - and here's your opportunity to develop more evidence-based skills to evaluate and report on medical research sent out in press releases, published or presented at conferences.
With a roster of seasoned health journalists, medical research experts and statistical mavens, you can leave with story ideas and resources to pursue those stories.
Get instruction about:
Examining how science impacts policy - or not
Tapping into research tools
Making sense of statistics
Delving into fraudulent research
Understanding the evidence about screening
Finding the right questions about clinical studies
The workshop is Oct. 29 & 30 in Washington, D.C.
