Turning the Tide: Combatting Misinformation in Public Health
Please join us for the Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion‘s third national conference! This conference gathers public health communication leaders from across the country to highlight public health misinformation, and discuss lessons learned in confronting COVID-19 misinformation. Conference speakers will examine public health misinformation in climate change, abortion, and global vaccinations, and discuss strategies including debunking misinformation and collaborating with journalists to counter public health misinformation.
Turning the Tide provides a unique focus on experiential workshops to facilitate discourse, networking and application of methods. By bringing together leading public health and science communication researchers from across the country, we hope to contribute to the important research and discussion surrounding the science and practice of tackling public health misinformation.
