Kavli Conversation: Biotechnology, journalism, and the future of fertility

A FREE live (on the internet) event, Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 6:30 ET

Hello friend! Welcome to Scrap Facts.

I'm a reporter covering health and science with insatiable curiosity. I love everything I learn, not all of which gets its own story. Each issue, I'll bring you some of my favorite facts that I picked up on the job or while out living life.

Let’s talk about talking about biotech businesses.

There are a lot of important questions for journalists to ask when writing about science—and even more when there’s major money to be made.

On Thursday, Feb. 25, at 6:30 pm ET, I’ll be moderating a conversation with Antonio Regalado, MIT Tech Review’s senior biomedicine editor, and Norbert Gleicher, a reproductive endocrinologist and pioneering scientist in fertility medicine. We’ll be looking at the fertility industry as a case study of when science and medicine meets business, and talking about how the media covers it.

This event is FREE, and open to anyone. Sign up here! I’ll be facilitating audience questions.

If you like this conversation, be sure to check out other Kavli Conversations, happening online later this spring, as well as an archive of previous conversations. These are all sponsored by Sponsored by the Kavli Foundation and the Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program at New York University (my alma mater).

That’s all for now—stay curious, friend ❤️
