Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?

Presented By: Tim Caulfield

Saturday, June 1
11:30 - 12:00 pm
Saddleback Trail Room

NEW this year and available to registered guests is a special session presented by Timothy Caulfield.

Timothy Caulfield is easily recognized by his Netflix show “ A User’s Guide to Cheating Death” and is the author of the book “Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?: When Celebrity Culture and Science Clash”

Celebrities are everywhere! This matters. Seriously. Research shows that popular culture has a profound influence people’s health and that our ideals of beauty and success are framed by a celebrity-dominated worldview.  In this fun and provocative presentation, Professor Timothy Caulfield will examine what science tells us about the influence of popular culture. He will also debunk common health myths and provide practical, evidence-based, recommendations relevant to both healthcare professionals and to individuals seeking to live a healthy lifestyle.

Note: this talk is included for all guest registrations and is appropriate for ages 16+
