NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

That’s the headline for an article nurse-blogger Barbara Ficarra bficarra.jpgposted based on a Q&A with me. Barbara also hosts a radio program, the Health in 30® Radio Show. She’s a head nurse at a level 2 trauma center. We’re pleased to see her interest in our work, and for her to tell her readers and listeners about what we’re trying to do to improve health journalism and the flow of information to American health care consumers.
