Midmorning: Heart disease in women and the journalism gap
Posted at 6:50 AM on March 14, 2007 by Bill Wareham
At 9 a.m., two top experts in heart disease in women talk with Kerri Miller about their latest research and how the field is changing to help more women get the care they need. Dr. Sharonne Hayes is director of the Women's Heart Clinic at Mayo and an associate professor of medicine and cardiology at the Mayo's College of Medicine. Dr. Anne Taylor is professor of cardiology and associate dean of the University of Minnesota Medical School. She directs the University of Minnesota's National Center for Excellence in Women's Health.
At 10 a.m., Kerri examines a trend among news consumers - they appear to be separating into two groups: those interested in hard news and those who want the latest on Paris Hilton. Where does that leave those in the middle? Kerri discusses the issue with one of the authors of a new report on the state of American journalism. Dante Chinni is a senior associate with the Project for Excellence in Journalism and a columnist for the Christian Science Monitor. He's one of the authors of the State of the News Media 2007 report.
