From the vibrant Boulware Learning Community, Kaci McCleary, Aline Sandouk, Dylan Todd, and Lisa Wehr discuss Yelp’s new hospital reviews and ProPublica’s Surgeon Scorecard. And we talk about why science and science facts fail to persuade people to believe the truth. Are emotional appeals better used than facts to teach people about medical truths? Is scientific fact as irrelevant now for most people as it was in the early part of the 20th century?
Also, we got a super nice comment from a listener on Facebook, which made Dave ‘a little misty-eyed.’ And an important recommendation for your next binge-watching session.
