In Summary Call to Arms: Share Accurate Medical Information on the Internet
In a piece by Jen Gunter, an OBGYN clinician and pain specialist, she calls on other physicians to help educate the public by sharing accurate medical information and encourages the public to participate by liking well-cited sources. Medical misinformation spreads like wildfire, promoting bogus products to ill-advised patients, or convincing people that their headache is due to cancer. Dr. Gunter was encouraged to write this piece due to her own experience raising her premature children and finding mountains of misinformation. Help other physicians and foundations like the CED Foundation to spread accurate medical advice and well-sourced evidence-based medical literature by sharing well-cited articles and liking posts that you find helpful. The more popular a post is the more likely it will pop up on other peoples pages due to social media platforms algorithm. Help spread accurate medical information!
