Reviewing Health News (HLOL #135)

by | Jun 16, 2015

HiRes - STE_7127 2Gary Schwitzer has published HealthNewsReview.org since 2006. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and director of the Center for Media Communication & Health. Previously, he directed a health journalism graduate program. Schwitzer has been working in, and with, the media for many years. No surprise, he has received numerous awards for his many contributions to medical communication.

In this podcast, Gary Schwitzer talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • How HealthNewsReview analyzes, grades, and works to improve journalism and public dialogue about health news.
  • Ways health communicators can help increase the public’s understanding about health issues, information, and implication of their choices. An example is making sense about screening, versus diagnostic, tests.
  • Resources and models of clearly communicating nuanced health information.

Health Literacy from A to Z: Practical Ways to Communicate Your Health Message, Second Edition (Updated 2018), by Helen Osborne. Relevant chapters include: 11, 13.
