Myths, half-truths, tall tales and the like, persist in health and medicine. In an effort to dispel common misconceptions, the DC Department of Health (DOH) is providing DOH staff, partners and stakeholders with facts.
Each week, DOH will share a myth and fact regarding a specific health or medical topic. Part of creating a culture of good health begins with separating fact from fiction and encouraging DC residents to take ownership of their health. This method of information sharing is a step towards achieving that goal.
Check this webpage weekly to learn new health facts that will enable you to be health ambassadors in your communities and personally lead healthier lives.
