Giving talks at ISDM 2013 (Peru) and at WCSJ 2013 (Helsinki): crossover of health care journalism & shared decision-making

This site will be on hold for the month of June because of other commitments.

I will deliver one of the keynote talks at the International Shared Decision Making conference in Lima, Peru.  Dr. Victor Montori of the Mayo Clinic invited me.  Ironically, we will meet in Lima for the first time, even though we live only 70 miles apart in Minnesota. My topic: “What Consumer-Centered Journalism Could Do to Promote Patient-Centered Care.”

Addendum on July 15:

Here is a video of my talk, followed by the slides of the talk.



Then I’ll speak on a panel at the World Conference of Science Journalists in Helsinki, Finland. The topic of the panel:  “Misuse Them And Abuse Them:  Fighting For Facts In Science Journalism.” You can follow from home by following the Twitter hashtag for the session – #sj4facts.  The broader conference hashtag is #WCSJ2013.
