Skeptical People and the Consumption of Misinformation
Shahida Shahrir Mellon, MPH and doctoral candidate at the University of Washington in the department of Health Services, joins us on the podcast to discuss science skepticism and the spread of misinformation, and how that correlates to our current Covid vaccination numbers within the United States.
We discuss how personal biases affect not only how research in medicine is conducted, but how we consume research and science in our daily lives. We're looking at best practices in how we can better consume information, and diving deeper into what the role of science should ideally be in our lives, family's and community.
