KFPL Live: Medical Myths & Misconceptions

How often have you made a change in your life or diet because of medical facts "everyone just knows" -- like avoiding gluten, drinking cranberry juice or using sunscreen? Did you ever find out science has proven an old wives' tale to be true?

Kingston's own Dr Michael Hefferon has long been fascinated by the intersection between myth and medicine. Come hear him talk about some of the examples he's collected in his book "Of Plagues and Vampires: Believable Myths and Unbelievable Facts from Medical Practice".

This is a drop-in program for adults and teens. No registration is required.
