When Dis-, Mis-, and Incomplete Information Meet Health and Science: Impacts On Society and Our Well-Being 

When communities or individuals are misled or not fully informed about crucial health or science information, the impacts on public health and societal well-being can be consequential. Join the Institute for Storycraft and Information Gathering (ISIG) in an intimate fireside chat with Tufts Trustee and health care strategy advisor and advocate, Kalahn Taylor Clark PhD, MPH, who will share techniques and insights for how health advocates and the layperson can navigate this complex space, especially in the context of AI and built-in biases that affect marginalized groups.

 

This discussion will be moderated by ISIG president and investigative journalist Brad Hamilton and ISIG treasurer and healthcare editor Victoria White.

 OMG! LOL! TLDR!

In an era when a tweet, sound bite, or hot take can dominate discussion on important topics, the long read is often ignored -- despite its ability to inform, entertain, and elucidate. So how can storytellers get people to pay attention for more than 10 seconds? New York Times deputy editor Mike Wilson, who helps produce the paper's Great Read feature, provides insights on the craft of the gripping narrative. Drawing on decades of helping writers tell great stories, Wilson will spell out elements that consistently captivate, and provide tips for working with an editor, colleague, or friend to create memorable content.
