Lynda Maria Ware
Lynda is a senior fellow in general practice at Cochrane UK. Her background is in primary care and she was a GP partner in rural Oxfordshire for over thirty years with particular clinical interests in psychiatry and women's health. Since joining Cochrane UK in 2014, she has visited many village halls and community centres around Oxford, talking to non-medical audiences about evidence based medicine (EBM) and its relevance to everyday life.
Lynda now visits schools to meet students from years 10 to 13 to teach about EBM and to encourage critical thinking, particularly around healthcare claims made in the media. She blogs about Cochrane reviews at evidentlycochrane.net
