More details on the return of Gary Schwitzer’s HealthNewsReview.org.

As I reported on Nov. 24, Gary Schwitzer and his HealthNewsReview.org will soon be back. In a post today, Schwitzer provides details of the project’s return.

The most important detail concerns the project’s funding. Schwitzer received a two-year, $1.3 million grant from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, which supports journalist-activist Gary Taubes‘s Nutrition Science Initiative (which I wrote about here) and Dr. John Ioannidis’ Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford. Ioannidis is the author of the famous 2005 PLOS Medicine paper, “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.”

Schwitzer says he and his team will resume publishing their “criteria-driven news story reviews” starting January 5, and that a newly redesigned website will go online in March of April.
