Media Reporting of Medical Advances: Helpful or Misleading?

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The media and medicine have different perspectives. At least in part, this is due to a preference for individual human stories over detailed analysis of results. 

This lecture will use examples of how the public may be misled and consider the implications of such misunderstanding.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.

Cost: Free of Charge
