Professional Interests

Dr. Woloshin's research interest is in learning how to enhance the quality of medical communication to the public, patients, physicians and policymakers. His work (in collaboration with Dr. Lisa Schwartz) has 2 main approaches: improving the quality of messages presenting health information to people, and preparing audiences to make sense of the messages they receive. His main focus is on the communication of medical statistics and information about the benefits and harms of screening and prescription drugs.
