Webinar: Vetting Sources of Medical and Scientific Information

Have you ever wondered whether you’ve found a miracle cure for your neuropathy, or if you’re just an unwitting victim of another snake oil salesman? How can you interpret the promising headlines in a magazine article versus the more tempered claims of the original research study? What evidence is enough evidence to ensure a new treatment is right for you? In this webinar we will go over how to vet research information, critically assess medical claims with a skeptical eye for research-based evidence, and how to better understand what types of biomedical research exist and how to interpret the claims made in different types of studies. At the end of this event, you will have tips and tools to ensure you’re bringing a critical eye to any new medical claims that you come across in your everyday life.

The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy (FPN) welcomes Kristy Townsend, PhD, Associate Professor; Department of Neurological Surgery, Wexner Medical Center at The Ohio State University and FPN Board Member as she shares on this important topic.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation.

Webinar held live Friday, March 18, 2022.
