Hey all! In the coming year I want to make some videos explaining medical science.
In a nutshell, the vast majority of medical research is inaccessible to lay people. Which I think is really terrible, because people who have the conditions being researched (and their families) often can’t access the research relevant to them, maybe can’t understand the articles (there’s a lot of assumed, expert-level knowledge), and as such they’re cut off from new understandings of their condition (and new ideas about treatment).
I want to do something to break down the barriers that keep non-med-sci people from being able to understand research that might be relevant to them.
So… What are the kinds of things you want to understand? What kind of questions about health do you have? I already have some topics planned just from seeing scare-articles on FB, and there are some things that are just personally interesting to me.
But suggestions would be appreciated :)
