Tackling Health Misinformation Together

 

Health misinformation is pervasive and harmful. Roughly 36% of US adults have basic or below basic health literacy levels and up to 96% of individuals use at least 1 unaccredited source when searching health questions online.

Source credibility is often considered to be made up of expertise and trustworthiness. Expertise is the extent to which the source is able to give accurate information while trustworthiness reflects the extent that one is willing to provide accurate information. Health professionals as individuals seem to be at the top of nearly all scales for public trustworthiness.

My experience as a physical therapist, researcher, and educator provides me the expertise and credibility to help you better understand health research and challenge misinformation.
