Building Online Communities in Health, Science and Technology News
The future of health, science and technology journalism is being forged, in part, by several reporters and editors in the Boston area who have taken the lead in creating online news operations serving specific audiences in new ways.

Some have figured out a way to become sustainable in a short time. Others are still searching for long-term viability. This event features journalists who have built robust audiences using different editorial strategies, staffing tactics and business models.
The panelists will discuss what works, what doesn’t work, and what’s changing. Hear their stories and discuss the ideas and experiences that are shaping the future of how people will be informed and engaged about health, science and technology for decades to come.
