LOCAL>> Leemon B. McHenry – The Illusion of Evidence-Based Medicine

Presented by Commonwealth Club at Streaming Arts

May 04 2021
LOCAL>> Leemon B. McHenry – The Illusion of Evidence-Based Medicine

Bioethicist/author in conversation with health-life coach Adrea Brier

Financial interests distort the truths of evidence-based medicine, says Dr. Leemon B. McHenry.

By revealing previously confidential documents released in litigation, Dr. McHenry exposes the role that pharmaceutical marketing has in the construction of medical literature, conference presentations and continuing medical education.

The marketing spin is designed to be indistinguishable from the genuine science, he says, thus seriously misleading our medical professionals and the public.

 

Leemon B. McHenry, Ph.D. specializes in medical ethics and philosophy of science. He is a legal research consultant, and is a professor emeritus at California State University in Northridge. He is the co-author of The Illusion of Evidence-Based Medicine: Exposing the Crisis of Credibility in Clinical Research.
