Here’s a conference calendar announcement: Health Journalism 2013, the annual conference of the Association of Health Care Journalists, will take place in Boston next year, AHCJ has just announced. (They recently held Health Journalism 2012 in Atlanta.)
The conference, which has drawn more than 600 attendees in each of the last two years, will take place March 14-17, 2013, at the Seaport Boston Hotel and the adjacent Seaport World Trade Center. The hotel and conference center are located on the Boston waterfront in the growing Seaport District. Boston should prove to be a great site for this conference, particularly given the concentration of world class medicine in the region.
Local hosts include Harvard Medical School/Harvard School of Public Health, Boston University and Children’s Hospital Boston. Also signing on as local sponsors are Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Dana-Farber Cancer Center.
For those unfamiliar with AHCJ, it is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing public understanding of health care issues. With more than 1,300 members across the United States and around the globe, its mission is to improve the quality, accuracy and visibility of health care reporting, writing and editing.
