The EvMedEd Navigator provides Medically Relevant Examples – or MREs. Each MRE introduces an example where an application of EvMed principles has led to an improved understanding of health and disease. MREs are organized by the principles they apply (rows) and the health topics they inform (columns).
Each MRE provides a general overview, a summary of principles that are illustrated, and links to further materials, including peer reviewed journal articles, video resources, popular press articles, and teaching materials (when available).
