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 - https://archive.org/web/.

Away to Guadalajara for Latin American health care journalism workshop

I may not be publishing much over the next week, as I’m helping to coordinate the second annual Cancer Research in the Media workshop for Latin American journalists with the National Cancer Institute.

Last year I made several presentations to the first such workshop in Rio de Janeiro.

This year’s session will be in Guadalajara, Mexico, with nearly 40 journalists from Latin American countries – and a few from the US from Spanish-language media.
