NEW YORK, July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) released the latest installment of the AWM Gracie Interview Series – A Virtual Gathering with American Medical Association President Susan R. Bailey, M.D. Titled "Medicine and The Media – Leadership in Historic Times," the session was moderated by Entercom's Kelly Ford, host of Kelly Ford in the Morning on New York's Country 94.7. The Gracie Interview Series – A Virtual Gathering series was created to engage leaders in media to share wisdom and guidance during a time of immense change and unpredictability.
In response to a question about what medical experts have learned since February, Dr. Bailey shared, "It's not flip flopping – this is how science is supposed to work. When we get new data, we draw new conclusions and may need to change recommendations." Regarding how media can be of service to the medical community, Dr. Bailey added, "Ultimately, we are all in this together. By sharing information, we can kick this virus."
The full recording of the session can be experienced here.
"Dr. Bailey shared meaningful insight into the important partnership between media and the medical community. This is a critical time for media to understand its role and for all of us to know our roles as individuals," Becky Brooks, Executive Director of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation stated. "We look forward to hosting more virtual gatherings to share the wisdom of experienced leaders."
