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 -

Speaking at health/medical journalism events in NY & Barcelona this week

Posted By


Monday I’ll speak to journalists who cover women’s health issues at the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s Media Project LEAD workshop at the Conde Nast building in New York City. Here’s a pdf file of the program.

And Wednesday I’ll return to Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, where I spoke two years ago. I’ll join international colleagues in a symposium on biomedical journalism, tackling the assigned question of “Is all published health news actually newsworthy?” Here’s a pdf file of that program.

(Addendum on February 7, 2013:  a booklet based on presentations at this meeting has now been published and is available online. The pdf of my talk is available here.)

As a result of these travels, I won’t publish anything on the site this week.

Check back the week of October 3.
