How to Decide Which Medical and Health Information You Should Trust

Fake news? Alternative facts? Overly hyped "breakthroughs"? Irreproducible scientific research results? Preprints? Gaslighting the medical literature? What to do?

Finding and trusting the best published primary medical literature is the answer. Our speakers for the 12th Annual Lundberg Institute Lecture at The Commonwealth Club, JAMA Editor in Chief Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo and BMJ Editor in Chief Kamran Abbasi, are among the premier guardians of that literature. Hear their advice, and then ask them your own questions about whom and what to trust - especially now when deciding which medical information is trustworthy has become so crucial and so confusing.

Speakers: Kamarn Abbasi, Editor, British Medical Journal; Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association; George Lundberg, Editor, Cancer Commons; George Hammond, Author, Moderator
