Media Panel Big Success

If you were watching last evening's media panel from the Individualizing Medicine conference here on Advancing the Science, you already know what a good exchange it was between the journalists and other experts under the moderating of Ira Flatow. In addition to attendees from the conference and members of the public, we had also invited high school science teachers and their students. They showed up in large numbers and many stayed afterwards to get autographs and ask questions. We could easily have extended the session far beyond the hour time limit given the number of questions submitted. By our count over 300 people were present and at least 30 watched the program online. Thanks to all who made it possible.
