The Owl & The Globe

Posted By



So I gave my talk about today to the Tufts Summer Institute – Web Strategies for Health Communication. And I gave out – as I usually do – computer mousepads that list our ten review criteria. But I also gave out our adorable stuffed owls – as a reminder to pursue wise health news.

Before the talk was over, one participant had loaded a picture of the owl onto Twitter but it was her “set design” that was impressive. The backdrop for the owl was today’s Boston Globe headline about Harvard’s new conflict of interest policy. COI was one of my topics.

Thanks to Lori Shanks for the photo and the kind words on Twitter.


Addendum: Chris Viveiros of Fenway Health was also in the crowd and just submitted this picture. Thanks, Chris. Fear the owl!
