Educational media workshop unites cancer scientists and journalists
Date:11/8/2007

What:

The topic of cancer prevention is covered widely in the mainstream media and is often fraught with apparently conflicting information and complex scientific research that is not easily relatable to the lay public. The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and Susan G. Komen for the Cure are working to improve communication between the scientific research community and journalists who cover cancer science by holding a free workshop for press during the AACRs highly popular Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research conference.

World-renowned scientists, cancer prevention experts and seasoned health care journalists will provide valuable insight to help journalists who are new to the health and science beat or those who would like a refresher course, effectively translate cancer prevention research findings into relatable and reliable information for the public. A networking lunch will cap off a morning of lively discussion and education. This workshop is a must-attend for journalists looking for reliable sources and research information in the cancer prevention field.

Session Topics:

  • Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research: Where have we been, where are we going" This session will also provide an overview of the science to be presented at the AACRs Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research meeting.
  • Interpreting the science of cancer prevention research
  • Cancer prevention trends
  • Cancer prevention myths vs. truths: A roundtable discussion

When:
Wednesday December 5, 2007
9:00 a.m.12:00 p.m.
Networking lunch: 12:00 p.m.1:00 p.m.

Where:
