Save lives and improve public health by countering misinformation

In Dead Wrong: Diagnosing and Treating Healthcare's Misinformation Illness, a team of health misinformation experts delivers a first-hand account of the dangers posed by false narratives and snake oil in the face of deadly healthcare crises, like the COVID-19 pandemic. In the book, you'll explore the challenges facing those who fight to restore truth to a place of primacy in the United States healthcare system, the strategies they use, and the lessons you can draw from their real-world stories.

Through interviews with healthcare leaders on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic and an intuitive discussion of contemporary academic research, the authors highlight issues of critical importance in the quest to bring accurate information to the American public. You'll also find:

An exhortation to healthcare professionals to take up the cause of countering misinformation as if their lives and livelihoods depend on it
A compelling portrait of the seriousness of the information predicament in which we currently find ourselves
Actionable, practical strategies for countering misinformation in today's information ecosystem

Perfect for clinicians, public health leaders, health-tech leaders, and health marketers, Dead Wrong will also earn a place in the libraries of media professionals and community leaders with an interest in keeping the American public healthy and vibrant.
