The Bay Area Chapter of the Association of Healthcare Journalists will hold a lively, hands-on workshop Oct. 14 designed to hone the skills of reporters covering the health care industry. “We’ll look at recent examples in our local Bay Area print and broadcast media and learn tips and strategies we can use everyday. Our instructors will show that it doesn’t take an extra thousand words of type or 10 minutes of air to get the accurate and balanced story you and your editors want — and your readers deserve,” the chapter said in this description of the event. Those interested are asked to RSVP so that organizers know how many seats to set up. For more information and to register via e-mail, click here.
