ANNOUNCEMENT: The Health Blogosphere -- What It Means for Policy and Journalism

July 28, 2008

This should be of interest to many of you...

The Kaiser Family Foundation is sponsoring a discussion about the growing influence of blogs on health news and policy debates. The briefing will highlight how the traditional health policy world has embraced blogging and will feature a keynote address by Dept. of Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Levitt, the first cabinet officer to author an official blog. Questions to be explored during the program include: Why do individuals and organizations blog? How does blogging impact the broader work of an organization? Are there different standards used when blogging versus other writing? Have blogs impacted the news business significantly? What kind of influence are blogs having on the political and policy debates?
