Summary
In discussing the scope of his presentation, the lecturer states that "because you are ultimately responsible for your own health, it's critical to understand the accuracy of medical information--to break down the growing body of misinformation and discover the truth about everyday health and well-being. These 24 lectures are an empowering learning experience that will give you evidence-based guidelines for good health, will enhance your ability to be better informed about common medical myths, and will strengthen your skills at assessing the scientific truth behind medical information and advice."--Guidebook
