Join NNLM for a free virtual symposium to address COVID-19 misinformation and mistrust, and to learn strategies and programs that can be used to engage with communities. The event takes place on April 8 and 9, 12-5 p.m., ET.
According to the World Health Organization, the COVID-19 pandemic is the first pandemic in which technology and social media have been used to keep people informed, connected and safe. This same technology is “enabling and amplifying an infodemic that undermines the global response and jeopardizes measures to control the pandemic”. The pandemic also highlights the disparities of underserved, minority, and underrepresented communities. The NNLM Virtual Symposium is an opportunity to engage with all NNLM Network Members to address misinformation and mistrust, raise awareness about the pandemic, and learn about efforts to combat it.
