Webinar description:

In 1997, the Woodhull Study on Nurses and Media: Health Care’s Invisible Partner found that nurses were cited as sources in only 4% of health news stories in leading print media of the day. Twenty years later, a replication of this study found that nurses were cited as sources in only 2% of health stories in the same publications. A 2018 companion study explored journalists’ experiences with using nurses as sources to identify the factors that make nurses invisible in health news media. This presentation will discuss these studies and examine ways that school nurses can address them. After this webinar, school nurses will be able to take specific steps to become “media makers” on school health, child and family health and myriad other topics.
