MAJOR RESEARCH INTERESTS
My research addresses the excessive fear and hope created by exaggerations, distortions, and selective
reporting in medical journals, advertising, and health news. My goal is to improve the communication
of medical evidence about cancer screening and prescription drugs to physicians, journalists, and the
public. Together with the NIH, I have run the health journalist workshop “Medicine in the Media: The
challenges of reporting on medical research” for the past 11 years and organized the first scientific
conference on Overdiagnosis held at Dartmouth (co-sponsored by Dartmouth, BMJ and Consumer
Reports), co-authored 2 books: Know Your Chances (selected for the NLM bookshelf) and
Overdiagnosed. I have collaborated with the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research to develop
better prescription drug information and the National Cancer Institute to develop better presentations of
cancer statistics.
