Some of you might be familiar with Dr Mike Evans and the great work of the Evans Health Lab. The Evans Health Lab “fuses clinicians and creatives, filmmakers and patients, social entrepreneurs and best evidence to create “edutaining” healthcare information.”

In 2011, his YouTube video  “23 and 1/2 Hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?” went viral. To date, the video has been viewed 7.5 million times and translated into eight languages, including Arabic and Gaelic.

The latest video in his “Whiteboard Med School” series is called “A ReThink of the Way We Drink.” In this video, he explores some of the recent research on alcohol and health. He touches on low risk drinking guidelines and sex-specific differences. He also talks about why many health care providers are often reluctant to ask about alcohol use due to fears about alienating patients or appearing judgmental.
