The NNLM Virtual Symposium: Responding to the COVID-19 Infodemic is an opportunity to address misinformation and mistrust, raise awareness about the pandemic, and efforts to combat it. Symposium attendees can expect to come away from the 2-day experience with a better understanding of COVID-19 and share strategies and programs to engage with your community.
