"Gave me story ideas. Clearer understanding of variety of scientific basics. Contacts with resources."
"It's opened my eyes about what to look for and added a new element to my reporting."
will give me the ability to ask questions based on deeper level of understanding,
it gives me a basis to decide what questions to ask and how to ask them."
"It gave me a good background and a great idea of what's going on in the heads of drug users."
"The speakers were great but their credentials were even more impressive."
"Non-competitive atmosphere among fellow journalists because our coverage areas are so vastly different. Also allows for fascinating exchange of ideas and opinions representing each region of the US. General enlightenment on prevalent issues to knowledgeably pass on to readers."
"I truly enjoyed every aspect of the program and feel as I will truly benefit from the information received, as will my readers and co-workers."
"Keep it up and don't give up on journalists. Most of us really try hard to do a good job; but, time constraints and unavailability of resources can hamper us in doing as good a job as we want to."
