Module Length: 
1 hour
Class Description: 

Have you ever seen an Instagram ad for the latest quick solution to weight loss? Has your grandmother ever asked you a question about a remedy she saw on Facebook for a chronic health challenge? Does the guy you sat next to in high school science class, you remember…the one who failed the class, keep sharing the latest “cure” to pandemic-level diseases on TikTok?

This module is intended for all learners, regardless of experience or interest in using social media, to help distinguish the truth from trash. For future providers and leading researchers, this module also provides additional insight into the print outs, articles, and posts patients will bring with them to appointments and strategies you can use to help battle misinformation about health.
