Women of Teal is a play on the words "Man of Steel" used to describe Superman. I have found my fellow ovarian cancer survivors to be the strongest, most helpful women in the world. They are truly Women of Teal!
This year’s course, to be held October 14–17, 2012, at the Bolger Center in Potomac, Maryland, is open to bloggers, reporters, and editors who provide the general public with news stories about health and healthcare via print, broadcast, or online media. While participants should be eager to enhance their skills in medical science reporting, they need not have extensive experience or a background in medical journalism. The course teaches attendees to:
•Interpret and evaluate research findings, including statistics.
•Select stories that hold meaningful messages for the public.
•Place stories in their appropriate context.
Please note: The deadline to apply is June 1, 2012, at 5 p.m. ET.
