Registration Now Open: Responding to the COVID-19 Infodemic

Posted by on March 30th, 2021 Posted in: All Posts


The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the disparities of underserved, minority, and underrepresented communities. This includes ensuring equal understanding of accurate health information, education in hard hit communities, and valuing inclusion in clinical research to overcome COVID-19.

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.
