Robert Miller is a physician (board certified in internal medicine and radiation oncology) his CV is here and experience with Hospice is here.

He continues to speak to medical groups on multiple topics (see videos section above) and has become involved with a wonderful group, ASPEC (Academy of Senior Professionals at Eckerd College) and is participating in their discussion group on COVID-19 (and so added a site on COVID-19 here.)

We are living in a golden age of science and information, which has exceeded the grasp of more and more people. When complexity exceeds our collective cognitive ability we (as a society) often behave badly (choosing beliefs over knowledge). We need to think smarter (see Thomas Friedman's new book). I have posted my own videos on the subject before (here and here).

We all need to work to oppose the rising anti-science sentiment that results when people feel overwhelmed and don't know who to trust. (Look up the lists of cognitive distortions and logical fallacies and see how many sound oddly familiar.)

When the internet first opened up there were sites that provided curated lists of 'best' sites but Google democratized that (using their secret formula) and now we all find our own sources of information (which we mistake for facts). I list my favorite sites and fact check sites and encourage people to try to vet the information sources they use. There is a lot of bad science out there, so this is no easy task.

Life’s not the breaths you take
The breathing in and out
That gets you through the day
Ain’t what it’s all about
Ya just might miss the point
If ya don’t slow down the pace
Life’s not the breaths you take
But the moments that take your breath away George Strait

“No wise man ever wished to be younger. ” Jonathan Swift
