Roma – 14 ottobre 2022
Angelicum Centro Congressi

Program

As the public pays great attention to health in the media, the press can be a powerful tool to educate about prevention and risks and about what medicine can and can’t do. But pitfalls and problems exist in science reporting and the quality of media reports about health topics is often inadequate. The Fast Forward meeting wants to be an open space for fair and pragmatic discussion about these topics.
