In today’s information age, when supposedly accurate medical advice and diagnoses can be found online with the click of a computer mouse, medical myths are all around us. But much of this information isn’t true, and using it to make decisions about your own health—whether it’s how to treat the symptoms of the common cold or how to care for a child or aging relative—can be harmful. This DVD series, produced by The Great Courses, features Dr. Steven Novella of the Yale School of Medicine, a medical doctor who has built his career educating patients, the public, students, and professionals about the highest standards in medical science and practice. His lectures will provide you with 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.
Facilitator: Dr. Jan Kornilow, EMS medical director, IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital
