Have you ever sworn by a particular medical fact (like "drinking cranberry juice wards off urinary infections") and then started to wonder where you learned it? Maybe you've wondered if there's any truth in an old wives' tale? Kingston's own Dr. Michael Hefferon has long been intrigued by medical beliefs and the truth behind them. Come hear him talk about 33 "medical myths" whose pedigrees he's collected over his long career as a pediatrician.
