Hi everyone!

We have a great webinar session coming up that we think many of you will find lively and informative.

Earlier in the year the new University of Washington course webpage, "Calling Bullshit"<http://callingbullshit.org/index.html>, went viral. Professors Carl Bergstrom and Jevin West, wanted a course that would teach students how to critically look at data and understand how it is manipulated.  Jevin will be focusing on the common pitfalls specifically around information visualization and examine the different ways that information can be misrepresented with figures and graphs at the next PNR Rendezvous, the monthly webinar series from your regional office of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Northwest Region (NNLM PNR).

Eligible for 1 Medical Library Association CE. This session will be recorded but we encourage you to attend the live session.
When: Wednesday, August 16, 1:00 - 2:00pm PT
