Hey all,

This workshop proposal is a good reason for Skeptics to come out to the Grassroots Radio Conference on Aug 18-21.  Registration is only $125 which includes food.

Sincerely,
Doug Greer

Grassroots Science and Medical Journalism

Reporting on health, technology, and the environment is the subject of this timely workshop. Discussion will include: 1) how to separate the news from the hype in science and medicine; 2) how science and medical research is organized, funded, and regulated in the US; 3) how to follow the best science and medical news and amplify good reporting buried in specialist journals. 4) Beware: Pseudoscience and Denialism. 5) Making science matter to your communities.

Keith Rozendal has been a community radio programmer since 1986, with KPFT and KTRU in Houston, and KCSB in Santa Barbara, where he worked as the News and Public Affairs director for 5 years. He has a PhD in social and political psychology and has taught in the Cal State University system. He just completed a year-long program in science journalism at UC Santa Cruz and has worked at the Santa Cruz Sentinel, the Stanford School of Medicine, and Big Picture Science, the science radio magazine produced at SETI Institute (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence)

Keith is interested in co-convening the workshop with anyone else in attendance who does similar work, including health, technology, or environmental reporting.
