Description:

**Due to the Major Winter Storm today this event is canceled. **
Stay tuned as we will be rescheduling this meeting for the near future.

Join us for a special lecture with David Gorski on Quackademic Medicine: Blurring the Lines Between Science-based Medicine and Pseudoscience.

This event is co-sponsored by the Birmingham Temple.

Most people assume that medicine is based in science, and much of it is. However, over the last 25 years there has been a concerted effort to introduce quackery into what should be science-based medicine. What once were bastions of science now embrace pseudoscience in medicine.What is a patient to do? Join us to learn more!

Meetings are open to the Public. Plenty of free parking is available, including handicap accessible.
