  • Medicine in the Media
    Have you ever wondered why the media is so concerned about MRSA? Does their coverage actually correspond to the scientific evidence? Second year students from the University of Sheffield Medical School were trained by staff from the Department of Journalism Studies to help them to answer this question. They spent seven weeks investigating the ways in which the depiction of MRSA has changed over the past decade in newspapers ranging from the Sun to the Times via the Yorkshire Post.
