Newswise Live delivers researchers to journalists.

Newswise Live delivers researchers to journalists. Newswise Live offers reporters the opportunity to have their questions answered by experts in a face-to-face environment via a virtual news conference. Newswise Live offers the real-time engagement you could only get from a conversation or personal interview – and without the hassle of hosting an on-site news conference.

Why a virtual news conference? Newswise Live saves your experts’ time and energy; when your news is so big that reporters will overwhelm your expert and infrastructure with requests for telephone interviews, allow Newswise Live to ease the load by hosting the event online (no security costs!). Newswise Live maintains face-to-face interactions (no loss of relationship-building!), and promotes global attendance (no worries about having local-only reporters show up for your traditional news conference). Newswise Live events are accessible from anywhere in the world with a computer, tablet or smart phone, and are archived and linkable for posterity and promotional purposes.

Pete Spotts, Christian Science Monitor


Thursday, Jan 28, 2016 - Time: 2:00pm - 2:30pm

Christian Science Monitor

Pete is interested in receiving pitches about:

  • Non-nuclear, sustainable energy technology
  • Desalination technology

***Pete is not especially interested in single source stories, but is looking for experts who can answer the following questions***

  • For a renewable energy future, what are the most important technologies that need to be improved or happen? What’s the leading edge and who is doing it? Are the most important innovations batteries, other storage, fuel cells, hydrogen, solar panels, or changes to the grid to make electric energy more renewable?
  • Similarly with desalination technologies, who is doing the most innovative work to solve problems with expense and environmental impact?

Is your source’s research in these areas recognized by peers outside your institution seen as innovative or cutting edge? Pete suggests, if he asked a recognized leader in the field: “What paper published recently made you wish you’d been co-author?” would your researcher be mentioned?

Our Fast Pitch session (a virtual event) with Alisa Bowman, Rodale is scheduled for Thurs., Feb. 9 at 2 pm ET. This is not a typical Fast Pitch event but a conversation with Alisa. She is pitching her idea to you. She is looking for book authors. “I am on the hunt for new talent,” she said. “Primarily, I’m looking for experts with writing skills. So basically, a nutrition researcher or registered dietician who can write a menu plan, recipes AND the content that explains how to use it all. Usually, I’m looking for people with a natural focus (for example, they are into Ayurveda or herbs) or who have something new to say about health (weight, fitness, nutrition, aging, etc). I hire people to write books and also various other products (meditation audio, DVD's, etc). They would end up with both a byline, a paycheck, and a ton of exposure, as we advertise our products in our brands (Prevention, Men’s Health, etc.) as well as by direct mail, email campaigns, etc.” Alisa will tell you more about the nature of her work, her books, Rodale audience, the kinds of authors she's looking for, and the diversity of topics (within nutrition). She will also answer your questions. If you come to the meeting with a potential author, you might also take a minute to describe him or her and their expertise and qualification. There will be no practice for this event. You can see Alisa's LinkedIn profile at https://www.linkedin.com/in/alisabowman

Cordant Health Solutions Live Professional Briefing


Saturday, Mar 11, 2017 - Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm
You are Invited to a Live Professional Briefing Join us March 21 as Richard Stripp, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Cordant Health Solutions, explains how a new testing technology gives clinicians the insight of steady-state blood testing while also offering the ease and benefits of oral fluid testing to help clinicians assess medication levels for their chronic pain patients. Introducing CORE™, Cordant's Comprehensive Oral fluid Rx Evaluation The first drug monitoring solution to correlate drug concentrations in oral fluid with drug levels in blood plasma. Offering individualized drug testing for pain management. Testimony From a Current Family Medicine Physician Who Uses CORE in His Practice. "Dose-correlation testing helps doctors detect problems on how patients are taking or not taking their meds," said Kwesi Grant-Acquah, M.D., a family physician at Omni Family Medical in Milwaukee. "If a patient's drug level is above or below the expected steady-state range at the prescribed dosage, the patient may not be taking the drug as directed or may have genetic or metabolic abnormalities that could require a therapy change." According to Dr. Grant-Acquah, results from the CORE test provide physicians with actionable information to use in conversations with patients about how and when they are taking their medications. "Urine testing can't determine if a patient is adhering to exact dosing. All the physician knows is the patient took the drug before urine collection and not if proper dosing is being followed." About the Speaker As Cordant's Chief Scientific and Technical Officer, Dr. Stripp provides leadership to five toxicology laboratories across the country. He currently serves as a professor of forensic and clinical toxicology at the City University of New York. Additionally, Dr. Stripp is a member of various toxicology organizations, including the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology, and is a certified forensic consultant for the American Board of Forensic Examiners. Dr. Stripp earned his Ph.D., in pharmacology and toxicology from the St. John's University College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions.

The Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize competition challenged research teams to develop a device inspired by the fictional Star Trek tricorder that weighs no more than five pounds and diagnoses 13 health conditions and captures five real-time health vital signs. Devices were judged for their diagnostic accuracy and user experience. In this session, a member of the winning team, Final Frontier Medical Devices, will present for the first time the real-life tricorder DxtER to researchers at a U.S. scientific conference. The audience will hear from contest finalist Dynamical Biomarkers Group and semi-finalist DMI as well. The speakers will discuss the technology they have developed and its potential future, while also sharing the inspiration for their devices and the hurdles they encountered. This is an opportunity to hear more from these innovators about the drivers and status of the digital health revolution, as well as the breakthroughs needed for this area of science fiction to become reality. These include the emergence of precision diagnostics that utilize novel sensing technologies with advanced technological integration, and that will require new regulatory pathways and healthcare industry acceptance. Following the presentation, there will be a moderator-led Q&A session featuring questions from the audience, who are experts in the field with the knowledge and experience needed to assess the science of DxtER as well as its impact on patient care.

Every Child Needs - Virtual Press Briefing


Thursday, Aug 10, 2017 - Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm
Equality isn’t cutting it. No matter where children live, learn, or play, they need—and deserve—the opportunity to lead a healthy life. While progress is being made in states across the country to help children grow up healthy, in many neighborhoods, there is still a long way to go. Even as states and cities see more children achieving a healthy weight, the reality is racial disparities persist. In order to accelerate progress, we need to tip the scales further to health equity by creating the opportunity for everyone to be healthier, especially those whose obstacles are the greatest. A new campaign—Every Child Needs—is shedding light on what communities and schools need to create healthy environments to help children succeed. Twenty organizations that are improving nutrition and increasing physical activity among children are working together to underscore that every child needs a healthy start, healthy schools, and healthy communities in order to build a foundation for a healthy future. Join our virtual press briefing on August 10 at 11 am ET to hear from some of these organizations about new research, stories of successful programs in communities, and experts who can speak to the need to ensure all children have access to nutritious food and safe places to be physically active. Participating organizations include: · Alliance for a Healthier Generation · America Walks · American Academy of Pediatrics · American Heart Association · Centers for Disease Control and Prevention · Robert Wood Johnson Foundation · MomsRising · Safe Routes to School National Partnership · Salud America! · SHAPE America · The Food Trust · UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity · Youth for Healthy Schools

Pitches should focus on stories relevant to healthcare practice, which can include epidemiology, policy and healthcare management, as well as clinical medicine. Human interest is good if it involves practicing clinicians. Avoid basic science, animal studies, behavioral psychology and evolutionary biology. Also, avoid research already published -- such stories on our site usually post within a couple days of study publication/presentation.

I also write about forensics mysteries, as well as the space program. I like pitches about social science that touch on these areas, recent history that illuminates them, and more traditional research that points to good narratives, such as a researcher who interviews heroin dealers or led an interesting but under-reported investigation into some awful/intriguing thing. I don't do one shot 'study says' type stories very often.”

Experts to Demystify Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing at the 71st AACC Annual Scientific Meeting


Sunday, Aug 4, 2019 - Time: 6:30pm - 7:30pm
The popularity of consumer genetic testing is rising exponentially, with as many people buying these tests in 2018 as in all previous years combined. However, many consumers do not fully understand the limitations of these tests. Genes and lifestyle factors interact to influence disease risk in complex ways that at-home tests cannot yet quantify—yet many people consider results from these tests definitive, which may lead them to undergo unnecessary or even detrimental treatments. In the session “Consumer Genomics, Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing, and Patient Empowerment,” two renowned experts will explore how the healthcare community can enable patients to benefit from the direct-to-consumer revolution while also protecting them from its potential pitfalls. The session will feature Dr. Jill Hagenkord, chief medical officer of Color Genomics (and former chief medical officer of 23andMe), who will discuss the state of consumer genomics in 2019. Dr. Theodora Ross, a geneticist who directs the high-risk cancer genetics program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, will then delve into the hype surrounding direct-to-consumer genomics, the harms these tests can cause, and the hope for the future of this field. The session will also examine how various direct-to-consumer genetic tests differ from each other in terms of accuracy and utility, how these tests are regulated, and how they fit into patient care overall. Find out more about this session here. Session Location: Room 204B Anaheim Convention Center Anaheim, California If you are interested in attending this session in person, AACC Annual Scientific Meeting registration is free for members of the media. Reporters can register online here. To watch this session via livestreaming, register below.

    Virtual Press Briefing with Disruptive Technology Award Finalist at AACC 2020 Virtual Meeting


    Wednesday, Dec 16, 2020 - Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm
    Montpellier, France - ALCEDIAG, one of 3 finalists for the “Disruptive Technology Award” at the annual AACC meeting 2020, will be holding a press conference to announce a game-changing technology and diagnostic tool for precision medicine in psychiatry: EDIT-BTM, the very first blood test for a high-performance differential diagnosis of unipolar depression and bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is a psychiatric chronic disease characterized by mood changes. It is currently diagnosed by clinical evaluations and is often confused with depression. Up to 40% of the 300 million people suffering from depression may be misdiagnosed. Currently, an accurate diagnosis takes 7 years on average. If undiagnosed and left untreated, bipolar disorder worsens and prevents patients from living their life. On one hand, there is a heavy burden on life expectancy, quality of life and overall patients’ outcomes. On the other hand, there are massive economic costs. In the US, the societal costs of one-year delay in the diagnosis are $80,000 per patient. Therefore, EDIT-BTM, will provide the healthcare professional with a valuable (and reliable) diagnostics solution allowing patients receive timely and appropriate care. “I'm excited that in my lifetime we will finally have a reliable diagnostic tool for bipolar disorders”, said Prof. David J. Kupfer, world renown expert of bipolar disorder, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and member of ALCEDIAG scientific advisory board. At the press conference, the company will discuss its breakthrough development in the field of RNA-editing based biomarkers for mental health, introducing biology in psychiatry and presenting the launch of a new blood test to that effect. Prof. Kupfer will be moderating the press conference. When: Join us on December 16th, 2020 at 11:00 am Central Time. About Alcediag: Alcediag is a precision diagnostics company focusing primarily on mental health. It develops and commercializes blood-based diagnostic solutions for mental health. Based on its expertise and experience, Alcediag developed a platform harnessing cutting-edge molecular biology and Artificial Intelligence to discover new biomarkers based on RNA editing.

    Breakthrough Cases: Harbinger of COVID Boosters?


    Wednesday, Aug 18, 2021 - Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm
    Are rising levels of breakthrough cases a harbinger of COVID boosters? Recent reports suggest that current COVID vaccines may be less effective against the delta variant than earlier studies predicted. The FDA announced emergency use authorization for boosters for immunocompromised patients. Meanwhile breakthrough infections account for very few hospitalizations and almost no deaths. We’ll ask the experts: are breakthrough cases becoming a problem in spreading the virus, even if the cases are mild? Is immunity among the vaccinated, and recovered COVID patients waning over time? Should we get used to the idea of COVID boosters? Panelists: Dr. Julie Swann, MS, PhD, Department Head and A. Doug Allison Distinguished Professor at North Carolina State University and affiliate faculty in the joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at both North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Juan Wisnivesky, DrPH, MD, Chief Division of General Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai Health System.

    Pete is interested in receiving pitches about:

    • Non-nuclear, sustainable energy technology
    • Desalination technology

    ***Pete is not especially interested in single source stories, but is looking for experts who can answer the following questions***

    • For a renewable energy future, what are the most important technologies that need to be improved or happen? What’s the leading edge and who is doing it? Are the most important innovations batteries, other storage, fuel cells, hydrogen, solar panels, or changes to the grid to make electric energy more renewable?
    • Similarly with desalination technologies, who is doing the most innovative work to solve problems with expense and environmental impact?

    Is your source’s research in these areas recognized by peers outside your institution seen as innovative or cutting edge? Pete suggests, if he asked a recognized leader in the field: “What paper published recently made you wish you’d been co-author?” would your researcher be mentioned?

    Our Fast Pitch session (a virtual event) with Alisa Bowman, Rodale is scheduled for Thurs., Feb. 9 at 2 pm ET. This is not a typical Fast Pitch event but a conversation with Alisa. She is pitching her idea to you. She is looking for book authors. “I am on the hunt for new talent,” she said. “Primarily, I’m looking for experts with writing skills. So basically, a nutrition researcher or registered dietician who can write a menu plan, recipes AND the content that explains how to use it all. Usually, I’m looking for people with a natural focus (for example, they are into Ayurveda or herbs) or who have something new to say about health (weight, fitness, nutrition, aging, etc). I hire people to write books and also various other products (meditation audio, DVD's, etc). They would end up with both a byline, a paycheck, and a ton of exposure, as we advertise our products in our brands (Prevention, Men’s Health, etc.) as well as by direct mail, email campaigns, etc.” Alisa will tell you more about the nature of her work, her books, Rodale audience, the kinds of authors she's looking for, and the diversity of topics (within nutrition). She will also answer your questions. If you come to the meeting with a potential author, you might also take a minute to describe him or her and their expertise and qualification. There will be no practice for this event. You can see Alisa's LinkedIn profile at https://www.linkedin.com/in/alisabowman

    Cordant Health Solutions Live Professional Briefing


    Saturday, Mar 11, 2017 - Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm
    You are Invited to a Live Professional Briefing Join us March 21 as Richard Stripp, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at Cordant Health Solutions, explains how a new testing technology gives clinicians the insight of steady-state blood testing while also offering the ease and benefits of oral fluid testing to help clinicians assess medication levels for their chronic pain patients. Introducing CORE™, Cordant's Comprehensive Oral fluid Rx Evaluation The first drug monitoring solution to correlate drug concentrations in oral fluid with drug levels in blood plasma. Offering individualized drug testing for pain management. Testimony From a Current Family Medicine Physician Who Uses CORE in His Practice. "Dose-correlation testing helps doctors detect problems on how patients are taking or not taking their meds," said Kwesi Grant-Acquah, M.D., a family physician at Omni Family Medical in Milwaukee. "If a patient's drug level is above or below the expected steady-state range at the prescribed dosage, the patient may not be taking the drug as directed or may have genetic or metabolic abnormalities that could require a therapy change." According to Dr. Grant-Acquah, results from the CORE test provide physicians with actionable information to use in conversations with patients about how and when they are taking their medications. "Urine testing can't determine if a patient is adhering to exact dosing. All the physician knows is the patient took the drug before urine collection and not if proper dosing is being followed." About the Speaker As Cordant's Chief Scientific and Technical Officer, Dr. Stripp provides leadership to five toxicology laboratories across the country. He currently serves as a professor of forensic and clinical toxicology at the City University of New York. Additionally, Dr. Stripp is a member of various toxicology organizations, including the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology, and is a certified forensic consultant for the American Board of Forensic Examiners. Dr. Stripp earned his Ph.D., in pharmacology and toxicology from the St. John's University College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions.

May 31, at 2 pm ET. Jean and Lee are investigating stem cell therapy for a feature length theatrical and TV documentary film, tentatively titled “Inside the Stem Cell Revolution,” to be produced in the next year with shooting beginning in July. They are looking for leading experts in stem cell research and clinical applications to discuss this exciting and exploding new form of intervention for multiple conditions, including osteoarthritis, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hair loss, macular degeneration, MS, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s, autism, spinal cord injury, etc. The documentary explores stem cell therapy’s current status, promise and hazards, including the proliferation of controversial clinics that create a market in treatment tourism. The documentary offers an “insider’s” perspective to counter balance the sense of urgency and chaos that dominates the advancement of this unprecedented therapy. The ultimate aim is to help impatient patients understand the importance of making wise choices in the rapidly moving field of stem cell therapy. This is a chance for our leading expert scientists to enlighten all the rest of us who are just learning about stem cells and dreaming of immortality. Jean was a long-time producer at CNN and has authored 24 books.

    The Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize competition challenged research teams to develop a device inspired by the fictional Star Trek tricorder that weighs no more than five pounds and diagnoses 13 health conditions and captures five real-time health vital signs. Devices were judged for their diagnostic accuracy and user experience. In this session, a member of the winning team, Final Frontier Medical Devices, will present for the first time the real-life tricorder DxtER to researchers at a U.S. scientific conference. The audience will hear from contest finalist Dynamical Biomarkers Group and semi-finalist DMI as well. The speakers will discuss the technology they have developed and its potential future, while also sharing the inspiration for their devices and the hurdles they encountered. This is an opportunity to hear more from these innovators about the drivers and status of the digital health revolution, as well as the breakthroughs needed for this area of science fiction to become reality. These include the emergence of precision diagnostics that utilize novel sensing technologies with advanced technological integration, and that will require new regulatory pathways and healthcare industry acceptance. Following the presentation, there will be a moderator-led Q&A session featuring questions from the audience, who are experts in the field with the knowledge and experience needed to assess the science of DxtER as well as its impact on patient care.

    Every Child Needs - Virtual Press Briefing


    Thursday, Aug 10, 2017 - Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm
    Equality isn’t cutting it. No matter where children live, learn, or play, they need—and deserve—the opportunity to lead a healthy life. While progress is being made in states across the country to help children grow up healthy, in many neighborhoods, there is still a long way to go. Even as states and cities see more children achieving a healthy weight, the reality is racial disparities persist. In order to accelerate progress, we need to tip the scales further to health equity by creating the opportunity for everyone to be healthier, especially those whose obstacles are the greatest. A new campaign—Every Child Needs—is shedding light on what communities and schools need to create healthy environments to help children succeed. Twenty organizations that are improving nutrition and increasing physical activity among children are working together to underscore that every child needs a healthy start, healthy schools, and healthy communities in order to build a foundation for a healthy future. Join our virtual press briefing on August 10 at 11 am ET to hear from some of these organizations about new research, stories of successful programs in communities, and experts who can speak to the need to ensure all children have access to nutritious food and safe places to be physically active. Participating organizations include: · Alliance for a Healthier Generation · America Walks · American Academy of Pediatrics · American Heart Association · Centers for Disease Control and Prevention · Robert Wood Johnson Foundation · MomsRising · Safe Routes to School National Partnership · Salud America! · SHAPE America · The Food Trust · UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity · Youth for Healthy Schools

Pitches should focus on stories relevant to healthcare practice, which can include epidemiology, policy and healthcare management, as well as clinical medicine. Human interest is good if it involves practicing clinicians. Avoid basic science, animal studies, behavioral psychology and evolutionary biology. Also, avoid research already published -- such stories on our site usually post within a couple days of study publication/presentation.

I also write about forensics mysteries, as well as the space program. I like pitches about social science that touch on these areas, recent history that illuminates them, and more traditional research that points to good narratives, such as a researcher who interviews heroin dealers or led an interesting but under-reported investigation into some awful/intriguing thing. I don't do one shot 'study says' type stories very often.”

    Carol Pearson, Voice of America


    Wednesday, Mar 21, 2018 - Time: 2:00pm - 2:45pm
    Carol covers health with an international and video focus at the Voice of America. Her audience is in 47 languages. She writes primarily for TV, but she also produces reports for radio and the web. She must have video (interviews and b-roll). Videoconference technology (Zoom or Skype) is acceptable, but not ideal. Her focus on health news ranges from infectious diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, polio eradication, Zika, Norovirus to influenza and measles (and vaccine and anti-vaccine sentiment) to major medical issues, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. Each story must be of interest to an international audience. Carol plans to invite other members of the science, tech and health team to join her in the Fast Pitch event. Again, video is essential for her stories. If you have it, show it. If not, let her know if you can arrange and provide b-roll and a video interview using questions she will provide. For an idea of the stories covered by this team, go to www.voanews.com and click on “Science and Health” or “Technology” in the banner along the top.

    Experts to Demystify Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing at the 71st AACC Annual Scientific Meeting


    Sunday, Aug 4, 2019 - Time: 6:30pm - 7:30pm
    The popularity of consumer genetic testing is rising exponentially, with as many people buying these tests in 2018 as in all previous years combined. However, many consumers do not fully understand the limitations of these tests. Genes and lifestyle factors interact to influence disease risk in complex ways that at-home tests cannot yet quantify—yet many people consider results from these tests definitive, which may lead them to undergo unnecessary or even detrimental treatments. In the session “Consumer Genomics, Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing, and Patient Empowerment,” two renowned experts will explore how the healthcare community can enable patients to benefit from the direct-to-consumer revolution while also protecting them from its potential pitfalls. The session will feature Dr. Jill Hagenkord, chief medical officer of Color Genomics (and former chief medical officer of 23andMe), who will discuss the state of consumer genomics in 2019. Dr. Theodora Ross, a geneticist who directs the high-risk cancer genetics program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, will then delve into the hype surrounding direct-to-consumer genomics, the harms these tests can cause, and the hope for the future of this field. The session will also examine how various direct-to-consumer genetic tests differ from each other in terms of accuracy and utility, how these tests are regulated, and how they fit into patient care overall. Find out more about this session here. Session Location: Room 204B Anaheim Convention Center Anaheim, California If you are interested in attending this session in person, AACC Annual Scientific Meeting registration is free for members of the media. Reporters can register online here. To watch this session via livestreaming, register below.
