Council for the Advancement of Science Writing (CASW)

The Council for the Advancement of Science Writing (CASW) is another organization for people who have an interest in medical and scientific writing. Here's a brief snippet from their site:
The Council for the Advancement of Science Writing is committed to improving the quality of science news reaching the public. Comprised of a panel of distinguished journalists and scientists, CASW develops and funds programs to help reporters and writers produce accurate and informative stories about developments in science, technology, medicine and the environment.
This year, their annual conference is in October and it's in Texas.
The 47th Annual Conference
New Horizons in Science 2009
October 18, 2009 – October 20, 2009
Hosted by University of Texas, Austin
What's interesting is that New Horizons in Science is being held in conjunction with the annual meeting and workshops of the National Association of Science Writers (NASW) as part of ScienceWriters 2009 (http://www.sciencewriters2009.org/).
