"Selling Sickness" conference in Amsterdam

I’m headed to Amsterdam for this international conference this week. Details are available at: http://www.gezondescepsis.nl/conference-2010.html. Those who use Twitter can follow the conference tweets using the hashtag #ssadam.

The first talk will be given by Australian journalist Ray Moynihan, “Where science meets marketing.” He’ll also speak at a one-day workshop on disease-mongering on October 16 in Vancouver, BC, along with Alan Cassels and Barbara Mintzes. Moynihan’s work has inspired me, helping me think about disease-mongering in new ways. He helped inspired the Media Doctor Australia website, the forerunner for our HealthNewsReview.org project, and for the Media Doctor Canada site site, run by Cassels.
