We interview physicians whose daily work, activism, and social media presence, have sparked solidarity, harassment, and threats. The human stories behind the controversies are the focus of this interview series.
Dr. Kristina Hänel talks about who her enemies and supporters are, how she has learned to deal with stress, and what advice she would give to young physicians that may find themselves in similar situations.
Dr. Di Grazia (also known by his nickname 'MedBunker') is a digital authoritative bulwark in defence of medicine & science, and against the attacks of so-called alternative medicine, pseudo-medicine and fake news.
Dr. Wargon takes to Twitter several times a day. His views have triggered threats that transcend the digital. Ever since he received a bullet cartridge case, his secretary has been reluctant to open his mail.
Dr. Gorski is professor of surgical oncology, an advocate of evidence-based medicine, and a staunch critic of 'alternative medicine' and the anti-vaxx movement, engaging passionately online to counteract disinformation.
