Evaluating Medical Information Online

Register for this online program here.  

Millions of consumers get health information from magazines, TV or the Internet. Some of the information is reliable and up to date; some is not. How can you tell the good from the bad? 

Jennifer Nilsen, a research fellow at Harvard University's Technology and Social Change project, will be discussing the media manipulation lifecycle. Her research focuses on medical misinformation, and she will talk through two case studies that give examples of strategies and tactics employed by media manipulators and campaign participants. After the case studies, there will be time for Q & A.
