NIH to host symposium: Medicine in the media

Medicine in the Media: The Challenge of Reporting on Medical Research will be presented from June 8 through June 10 at The Cloisters on the NIH campus. Using an evidence-based approach, the symposium builds on your current expertise and experience while offering new tools to assist you in the important tasks of evaluating research findings, selecting stories that have meaningful information for your target audience, and putting that information in the appropriate context.

Prominent experts in medical research and medical journalism will work with you in re-examining intuitive beliefs about medicine. Interactive sessions incorporate your perspective on the public's need for useful medical knowledge while working with you on developing story ideas based on cutting-edge research. Invited speakers and discussion topics are detailed below.

Based on your background, you are among the first journalists receiving this invitation to apply to participate in this symposium, in particular because of the important role you fill in communicating meaningful, and often critical, health information to the public. While there will be no charge for participating in the symposium, space is limited so you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. Instructions for the web-based application process and additional information are available at our website, http://medmediacourse.nih.gov. You may also email us for more information at medmedia@od.nih.gov or call (301) 496-6615. The deadline for application is April 1, 2003.
