Dr. Stephen Hussey Notable Quotes

“I want people to be smart consumers of media. So there’s a lot of information there about health, and it can be really hard to sort through what’s the best, what’s not, or what’s just trying to sell you something or what’s just trying to grab your attention…I would just caution people to do their homework and not always take those media headlines as the truth.”
Dr. Stephen Hussey
