The Rise of Dr. Google
Youth are increasingly accessing health information online, independent of traditional channels of doctor-patient and parent-child communication. What kinds of information are they encountering, and how accurate is it? Are they able to tell the difference between an influencer paid to promote a product and evidence-based medical advice? How can families and communities encourage digital health literacy and help children use a critical lens to find trusted sources for health advice?
Join us on Tuesday January 31 at 11:30 am ET for the next “Ask The Experts” webinar “The Rise of ‘Dr. Google:’ Youth and Online Health Information” as a panel of researchers and public health experts explore the trends and impacts of youth searching for health guidance on the internet.
