UAB Libraries: I Saw it on Facebook - Tackling Health Misinformation

Presented by James Gilbreath, and Brooke Becker. Health information is vital to our daily lives. With the rise of social media and the deluge of internet sites dedicated to "healthy living" how do you know where to turn for information that is accessible *AND* medically sound? In this presentation we will discuss valuable sources for reliable information and ways you can evaluate (and help others do so as well) what's "good for you" and what's not.

Registration is strongly encouraged for in-person attendance so that we can notify participants of any unexpected schedule changes and ensure that we have the correct amount of food if a meal is provided. UAB faculty are always welcome to show up to in-person CTL events without registering. However, if you do attend without registering, we ask that if food is being served, you wait until all pre-registered participants have gotten their food before serving yourself.
