Woodhull study finds nurses still missing from media healthcare coverage – ANA Continues to Speak Out Against Harmful Cuts to Health Care. – (866) 348-2889

The Woodhull Study Revisited, which replicated the original research published in 1998, found nurse representation in print media healthcare coverage hasn’t improved with time.
