Title: The Dr. Oz Games: The Odds Are Never In Your Favor

   

With the current culture longing for safer and healthier options, many patients are fixated on the use of natural medicines.  Several patients are heavily influenced by TV doctors, especially Dr. Oz.  The “Dr. Oz Effect” is responsible for tremendous sales in products that lack any evidence as to their safety or efficacy.  This program aims to arm pharmacists with the ability to combat the “Dr. Oz Effect” and provide patients with the real information behind several popular natural products.
