Health care reporting workshop

10/14/08     San Francisco, CA

This hands-on workshop will hone your skills and help you overcome the hurdles of reporting and writing quality health care stories despite biased sources and commercial pressures in the health/medical industry. We'll look at recent examples in our local media and learn tips and strategies. Our instructors will show that it doesn't take an extra thousand words of type or 10 minutes of air to get the accurate and balanced story you and your editors want - and your readers deserve.

Whether you're journalism student just learning the ropes, in your first job as a health reporter, or a seasoned pro, this event is for you.

In addition to our members and local health journalists, The Bay Area AHCJ chapter cordially invites all local journalism students who are pursuing careers in science, medical, or health reporting.
