Health news “watchdog” speaks at U-M: Video available

May 9, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

On April 26, the publisher of the website Health News Review, Gary Schwitzer, spoke at the U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation about how the media covers medical research and advances in care, and how clinicians and researchers can help make that coverage better.

Schwitzer leads a team that for 10 years has acted as a watchdog on the news media’s coverage of health, especially of new treatment options, and that recently began doing the same for press releases issued by hospitals, medical schools, medical journals and other entities.

His talk is available for viewing on the IHPI YouTube page. View it here.

A collection of live tweets sent out by IHPI and others during the talk via Twitter is available here.
