Meet-Up (01/21) – “Dr. David Gorski: Science-Based Medicine

Saturday January 21st, 2012 5:00 PM to 2:00 PM

The Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics are having a meet-up on Saturday, January 21st from 5:00 to 7:00pm (*note the new time!) at the Classic Cup Cafe. Our special guest will be Dr. David Gorski, a surgical oncologist at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, and a managing editor for the blog, Science-Based Medicine (SBM), a blog “dedicated to evaluating medical treatments and products of interest to the public in a scientific light, and promoting the highest standards and traditions of science in health care.” Much of the discussion at this meet-up will focus on the lack of efficacy in CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) treatments. Dr. Gorski can also talk about vaccines (refuting anti-vaccine myths and propaganda), and provide an answer to “why there’s still no cure for cancer.”

The first part of the event will be for general socializing and ordering refreshments. After which, there will be some announcements, and then we’ll start the informal Q & A at approximately 5:45pm.

12 signed up so far. Limit: 25.
