        Designing Experiments: Physicians Health Study

        Explore the realities of medical testing while learning about the Physician's Health Study conducted by epidemiologists at Brigham and Women's Hospital. This video focuses on how a randomized, double-blind clinical trial is designed in an effort to limit bias and how statistics can be used to try to uncover truths from large quantities of data, taking math out of the classroom and into real world problem solving. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
