Note to our followers: Our nearly 13-year run of daily publication of new content on HealthNewsReview.org came to a close at the end of 2018. Publisher Gary Schwitzer and other contributors may post new articles periodically. But all of the 6,000+ articles we have published contain lessons to help you improve your critical thinking about health care interventions. And those will be still be alive on the site for a couple of years.

Perfect storm of politics, PR, polluted messages to the public

Gary Schwitzer is the founder and publisher of HealthNewsReview. He has covered health care news almost exclusively since 1973. Here is his online bio.  He tweets as @garyschwitzer or as @HealthNewsRevu.

That was the title of a seminar presentation I made for the Georgetown University Health and the Public Interest program last week. It was delivered via Zoom for the graduate students in the program and for a broader Zoom audience beyond the University.

The co-director of the program, Adriane Fugh-Berman, MD, invited me.  She also leads the PharmedOut.org project based at Georgetown.  She and I have worked with Jeanne Lenzer and Shannon Brownlee for years in maintaining a List of Industry-Independent Experts to help reports find unconflicted sources for their reporting.

Georgetown has now posted a link to why talk, which you can watch at this link.
