My talk to Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT’s Medical Evidence Bootcamp for Journalists

For what I believe was the fourth time in the past five years, Phil Hilts of the Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT asked me to speak to their Medical Evidence Boot Camp.  It happened this week in Cambridge.

I was honored and delighted to be on the same program with Drs. Steven Woloshin and Lisa Schwartz of Dartmouth and Dr. Barry Kramer of NIH – stellar educators who also asked me to speak at this year’s NIH Medicine in the Media workshop in October.

The MIT bootcamp crowd was smart. There were journalists from Canada’s LaPresse, CBC National News, New Scientist, Los Angeles Times, Science, public radio, many freelancers, and, besides the Canadians, many other international journalists.

Here are my slides:
