Jen Gunter is on a mission to correct the misinformation and disinformation that infects online medical resources.

Why you should listen

Jen Gunter is an OB/GYN and pain medicine physician who advocates for evidence-based medicine. When her infant children were critically ill, like many people she turned to the internet. She was shocked at how easy it was to be led medically astray and wondered: If it was so hard for her as an experienced physician, how did everyone else manage? She decided to "fix the medical internet" and help people separate fact from fiction with her writing and activism.

In addition to being both a doctor and a mother, Gunter hosts the TED Audio Collective podcast Body Stuff with Dr. Jen Gunter and is a writer and host of the show Jensplaining. She has been called Twitter's resident OB/GYN and the world's most famous gynecologist. She is a fierce advocate for facts and tirelessly calls out those who exploit pseudoscience for financial and political profit.
