Ben Goldacre’s Bad Pharma North American Tour

Ben Goldacre

Ben Goldacre is a British physician, journalist, and author of two books I’ve previously reviewed and recommended: Bad Science and Bad Pharma. Ben will be in Canada and the United States next week promoting the North American release of Bad Pharma. Here are a few of the events that are open to the public:

Portland Oregon, February 17
Seattle Washington, February 18
New York City, February 21
Toronto, Ontario Feb 14 (Pub night!) and February 15

More details here. I hope to see you at the Toronto events. To prepare yourself, here’s a recent interview with Goldacre, and here’s one of Ben’s TED talks, What doctors don’t know about the drugs they prescribe.
