For Fun

Introduction

In 2013, the Pew Research Center published a report, "Health Online 2013," which found that "[thirty-five percent of U.S. adults say that at one time or another they have gone online specifically to try to figure out what medical condition they or someone else might have."

This workshop will help you sort through the abundance of health information you can find online. We'll focus on resources and strategies to help you become an informed, proactive consumer.

Learning Outcomes

After this session, you will be able to:

  • evaluate the scientific evidence of health news articles / studies
  • identify reputable consumer health websites
