Sara Gorman
“When was the last time you changed your mind

As Sara notes, changing your mind about a deeply held belief isn't just difficult to do from a personal, stick-to-your-guns standpoint, but also from a psychological perspective. As Sara puts it, “science depends on updating constantly with new information, but our brains do everything they can to keep us from changing our minds.” We see the stubborn refusal of facts play out across the world of health and medicine. For example, why do so many people believe vaccines are harmful, even when the scientific evidence  that came out in 2003 showed that they are not only safe, but beneficial to our health?

 

Sara is a public health and behavioral science expert who has written extensively about global health, science communication, psychology and mental health, among other topics. Her first book, Denying to the Grave: Why We Ignore the Facts That Will Save Us, explores the psychology behind irrational health beliefs and decisions. The book also provides advice for how the general public can discriminate between valid and invalid science, and considers how public health professionals and doctors can communicate with patients who have a fundamental mistrust of science and medical research. Her work has appeared or been reviewed in TIMEThe New YorkerSciencePsychology Today, The Atlantic, BBC and NPR and others. And Sara is also co-founder of Critica, a community committed to making rational decisions about health and security. 

 

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a

variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.

 

Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.

 

A discussion will take place after the lecture.
