POSTPONED: Fact or fake? Looking for evidence behind everyday health claims
Thursday 19 March 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Due to current concerns regarding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we have taken the decision to postpone this event to the autumn. The rescheduled event will be advertised later in the year at oxfordbrc.nihr.ac.uk/brc-events and oxfordbrc.eventbrite.com.
How do you assess the evidence behind health headlines? To separate the good from the bad, the truths from untruths, the advice you should act on and what you should ignore. Carl Heneghan, Professor of Evidence-Based Medicine and a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4’s Inside Health, will talk about how to assess the research evidence that regularly makes the news and affects your health.
Tickets are available at Eventbrite, however advance booking is not required. Refreshments at 5.45pm for a 6.00pm start. For more information, please contact OBRCenquiries@ouh.nhs.uk or call 01865 743341.
The talk will take place at the Kennedy Lecture Theatre in the John Henry Brookes Building at Oxford Brookes University Headington Campus. The John Henry Brookes Building is the large, glass-fronted building visible from the main entrance to the campus on Headington Road.
