From anti vaccination campaigns to bleach injections to questions of the safety of mask wearing, the COVID pandemic has brought issues of incorrect information related to health and medicine to the forefront of the national conversation, but these issues are neither new nor unique to COVID. How did we get to a point where it can be difficult for many to differentiate true, reliable information about our health from misinformation or even intentional disinformation and where do we go from here?Register today and consider sharing with colleagues, students, and friends.
Join us on August 12th as we consider the evolution, scope, impact, and efforts to counter health and medical misinformation and disinformation. Speakers will include APHA President Dr. José Ramón Fernández-Peña, MD, MPA and Imran Ahmed, CEO of the Center for Countering Digital Hate, among many others.
