Health Misinformation Webinar Series
Health misinformation is a widespread problem, with false or misleading information about both long standing health concerns like cancer and emergent situations like the COVID-19 pandemic spreading at a rapid pace. Sometimes questionable health information is obvious, but it can also be difficult to recognize and can potentially reach millions of people.
The Health Misinformation Webinar Series from NNLM features presentations from expert guest speakers. The series will enable librarians, public health professionals, health educators, and health care providers to explore various aspects of health misinformation, disinformation, and mal-information, and learn practical and evidence-based solutions for how to identify it and help curb its spread.
