Those involved in medical news invited to join an unprecedented gathering of experts

Sponsors of the conference are the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Mayo Foundation, CONUS Communications, Dow Jones & Company, Inc. and the Tom and Edwina Johnson Family Foundation.

ABC News Nightline host Ted Koppel will moderate two of the conferences seven panel discussions, including the opening night overview of the medical news dissemination process. During the opening night session, Frank Newport, editor-in-chief of the Gallup Polls, will highlight results of surveys tracking the publics expectations of medical news.

Medical, science and health journalists; editors of medical and scientific journals; Internet medical and health news providers; physicians and scientists; public relations professionals and public information officers; representatives from associations, industry and government; specialists in medical ethics; patient advocates and patients are invited to register attend the conference.

A series of presentations and roundtable discussions, led by national news media leaders, communications experts and government and industry representatives also will be part of the weekend agenda.

"Rarely do the sources of national health-care news have the opportunity to talk to media gatekeepers about ways to create win-win situations that satisfy the publics thirst for health-related information," says Tom Johnson, past chairman/CEO of CNN News and one of the conferences three program chairs. "This event is designed to help everyone involved in the process more reliably communicate news of medical and scientific discovery and health information."

Pat Mitchell, President/CEO, Public Broadcasting Services and Bill Lanier, M.D., Editor, Mayo Clinic Proceedings also will serve as program chairs for the conference.
