Upcoming Webinar on Health Misinformation: The speed with which information can spread on social media is astounding. In some cases, this allows for important information to be communicated quickly to massive audiences. However, misinformation can spread just as quickly as accurate information. What can you do to slow its spread? In this one-hour webinar hosted by NNLM MAR, guest speaker Dr. Leticia Bode will discuss misinformation on social media in general, how and why to correct it, and best practices for doing so. This webinar will take place on September 28 at 1:00 PM ET. Visit the class page for more details and to register.

Exploring Environmental Health with the NNLM Reading Club: Environmental health plays a role in a host of social issues facing our society, from how to ensure drinking water is safe, to what kinds of risks we should take in our pursuit of fossil fuels, to how much we should rely on plastic as a cheap and convenient answer for logistical problems. The NNLM Reading Club September selections will spur conversations on environmental health with reliable and provocative information. You’ll find the discussion guides, book & author information and more on the NNLM Reading Club’s Environmental Health page.
NNLM and NLM classes are free and open to all. Please feel free to share our training opportunities!
