You Want Me to Just Talk? No Problem.

I'm headed out tomorrow afternoon to Washington, DC, for this conference on "The Media and Medical Science", sponsored by the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest. They've asked me to participate on one of the panels, namely "Does Media Coverage Reflect Reality, and Does It Matter?"

Since I've no problem unburdening myself of my opinions, this should be pretty enjoyable (for me, anyway - the audience will have to take its chances). Should any readers be in the area and able to attend, I'll look forward to meeting you!

Hey! Is the conference free? Maybe I'll come down and watch. I read this blog and comment all the time, it wouldn't be out of my way to take a quick trip to the Hyatt.

As far as I know, it's free. I think that there's a registration form on the CMPI site, but as far as I know you would be able to walk in as well.
