    Lonnie Freedman is VPL's Health Literacies Specialist. He works in the Mackenzie Health Vaughan Library in the Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital.

    Lonnie will examine the red flags to watch for when reviewing health information online and in books to determine if a resource is reliable and is backed up in the scientific method.
