C-106 Holmes Hall, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI

Presented by CFI–Michigan State University.

Dr. Atwood will be giving a talk about homeopathy and evidence-based medicine, followed by a Q&A. This event is part of the Stand for Science: Confront Homeopathy demonstrations.

Homeopathy is renowned for both its popularity and for the pseudoscientific tenets it purports. In the U.K., the 10:23 Campaign has worked to educate the public about homeopathy and to call for retailers to stop selling homeopathic products. This October 28th, your group can join Campus Atheists, Skeptics, & Humanists (CASH) at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, the Center for Inquiry–Michigan State University, and other campus groups and protest the pseudoscience of homeopathy and its limited "regulation" by the FDA. 

Dr. Atwood is a practicing anesthesiologist in Massachusetts and is a Harvard Medical School graduate. He currently is a Clinical Assistant Professor at Tufts University School of Medicine and is Chairman of the Committee on the Quality of Medical Practice of the Massachusetts Medical Society. Dr. Atwood is concerned with the embracement of highly implausible pseudoscientific medical theories and practices like homeopathy by influential medical institutions.
