TED Talk Salon: What doctors don't know about the drugs they prescribe

Our TED Talk Salon features a monthly brain-stimulating presentation and lively discussion. If you're a curious world citizen we welcome you to this "video-style" book club.

What doctors don't know about the drugs they prescribe, by Ben Goldacre

When a new drug gets tested, the results of the trials should be published for the rest of the medical world — except much of the time, negative or inconclusive findings go unreported, leaving doctors and researchers in the dark. In this impassioned talk, Ben Goldacre explains why these unreported instances of negative data are especially misleading and dangerous.

Socializing from 2:00, Talk played at about 2:30; followed by small group/whole group discussion.

Monthly, we watch a recorded TED Talk by someone notable in his/her field. After viewing the talk, we'll discuss it. All are welcome to attend and share your thoughts, questions, and experiences around the topic.

If you have a special interest in some topic, or see a good TED Talk you think would make for lively and engaging discussion, send your suggestion to the Event Host, Rebecca.
