Need some assistance. I'm going over to the conference in Bologna (Jeff can't go- Monk and Ugly Betty are on the air now), and Dr. Z asked if we had any medical/health journalist connections to invite. All our friends are entertainment writers...not much med cred.
I've tried the head health desk writer at AP. Wow...she's quite the gal. I e-mailed her, had a follow up phone call where she told me, laughing, she would "never report on such a narrow topic." This is the woman who just wrote about Steven Tyler's broken arm. There's some journalistic integrity. Anyway, I'm in touch with Reuters medical writer (no go yet) as well as a Hail Mary pass to Meredith Viera's producer at the Today show, since she has a vested interest.
Do any of you know smart, non-pharma medical writers who have a national platform and would like to go visit Bologna, interview Dr. Z and sit in on the conference- paid by Fondazione Hilarescere? PM me or post here.
