This talk invites biomedical professionals and students to contribute to denouncing bad information and harmful pseudoscience on social media by showing the potency of Twitter to get institutions to change course. When a high-ranking doctor published an anti-vaccination screed on a local website, the mobilization on social media created a PR problem for his institution, which led to concrete action. How all this happened is a fascinating story, which demonstrate how you can help when it happens again.
Invited speaker at the International Congress on Personalized Health Care.
