More than Misinformed: Improving Public Health Information Environments

January 24, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

About the event

The COVID-19 pandemic and the associated infodemic – the abundance of information, both true and false, spreading at unprecedented speed and scale – has created myriad challenges for public health professionals. While COVID-19 is becoming endemic, our infodemic was, in fact, already endemic. In this webinar, speakers from Alliance member UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health will discuss their view that information environments are social determinants of health and describe their vision for how local infodemiologists – field epidemiologists for the infodemic – can begin addressing misinformation and building healthy information environments in their communities.

The UC Berkeley Public Health Alumni Association (PHAA) is honored to host David Scales and Sara Gorman for a presentation as part of their PHAA professional development webinar series. Please join a conversation with them to examine the topic of misinformation in public health.

To request access accommodations, please contact sph_events@berkeley.edu with as much advance notice as possible and at least 10 days in advance of the event.
