When the media tells you, “A new study shows…,” how do you know whether you can believe it? Studies can reach false conclusions for a variety of reasons. Using examples from both mainstream and alternative medicine, Dr. Harriet Hall will demonstrate how to look beyond the results and view studies with a critical eye.
Hall is a retired family physician and former Air Force flight surgeon. She writes about medicine, so-called complementary and alternative medicine, science, quackery, and critical thinking. She recently published Women Aren’t Supposed to Fly: The Memoirs of a Female Flight Surgeon.
This event is part of the Douglas College Students’ Choice Speaker Series.
