Healing Factual Malpractice with Timothy Caulfield & Jillian Horton
Hosted by Christina Frangou
DJD Dance Centre
111 12 Ave SE
When did everyone become an expert in epidemiology? Why do folks turn to Facebook as the go-to source for how viruses spread, how vaccines work, and the effectiveness of public-health guidelines? How can a politician’s solutions to the health-care crisis be more sound than those of doctors, nurses, and EMTs? Why, why, why would we turn to anti-science Joe Rogan or miracle-fix Gynneth Paltrow for anything more than entertainment? Two internationally renowned woo debunkers, Dr. Timothy Caulfied and Dr. Jillian Horton, are here to heal factual malpractice.
This 75-minute conversation, hosted by health, medicine and social issues journalist Christina Frangou, includes an audience Q&A (no charge for advice you can trust!) and book signing.
