New England Science Writers is kicking off the new year with a dazzling panel on blogging about health & science on Wed. 19 Jan. It’s on track to be a sell-out event. Twitter hashtag: #nesciblog11
The panel features:
* Daniel Carlat (http://carlatpsychiatry.blogspot.com)
* Ivan Oransky (http://embargowatch.wordpress.com, http://retractionwatch.wordpress.com)
* Gary Schwitzer (http://www.healthnewsreview.org/blog/)
* Rachel Zimmerman (http://commonhealth.wbur.org/)
Moderated by Alison Bass (http://alison-bass.blogspot.com/)
Panelists will talk about why they blog and how it’s helped them gain an audience and better establish themselves as credible experts in their fields. They will provide tips on how to blog and build up readership and discuss how blogs fit into the larger universe of health and science journalism. We’re planning lots of time for discussion.
