In this week’s Writs & Cures the team take a look at how health is portrayed in the media. Their special guest is Jill Stark – Jill was a senior writer for Fairfax until recently, and spent many years covering health stories. She speaks about how health practitioners can better use the media to promote quality health stories to the public.
And in a special Reboot Your Life soapbox, Steve and Bill take a look at technology and how it is impacting on health care, and maybe even the lives of lawyers. Does social media improve or damage our social lives? Are all the positive memes telling us how to be happy actually helping? How can we use technology to improve our health?
