Medical Literature: Discovering and Evaluating Commercials and Study Information

Evelyn R. Hermes-DeSantis (Pharmacy Practice and Administration)

In this seminar students will be exposed to discovering and evaluating the information provided in medical commercials and headlines of the day. When you see the latest weight loss ad, what does it really mean? When you see the latest headline declaring that coffee is or is not good for you, how do know what the information is based on? Students will look at recent medical headlines and current medical-based commercials. They will learn how to find the information behind the latest news items and will be given the skills to critically evaluate and apply the information to their everyday life.
