Aaron Carroll, MD

Dr. Aaron Carroll, Professor of Pediatrics and Associate at Indiana University School of Medicine will present Myths, Lies and Misconceptions:

We’ve all heard the one about a dog’s mouth being cleaner than a human’s. That’s a myth, says Dr. Aaron Carroll. “A dog’s mouth isn’t cleaner than a human’s – humans don’t use their tongues as toilet paper.” People have more access to health care information than ever before, yet we still believe “facts” about health care that are just plain wrong. Dr. Carroll will take on these myths, misconceptions and expose the truth behind what we think. The truth and good information are pertinent in today’s turbulent health care environment. This talk has been featured on Good Morning America, The Dr. Oz Show, CNN, The New York Times, USA Today and more.
