Conversations About COVID-19: Understanding and addressing the COVID-19 Infodemic

Since the initial outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, social media misinformation appears to be spreading faster than the virus itself, prompting the WHO to declare an "infodemic" of misinformation.

During this conversation, BCHS's Steve Albert and Beth Hoffman will discuss how COVID-19 related misinformation fits within the framework of science denialism, and provide strategies to help public health professionals and others accelerate the transmission of accurate scientific information related to the pandemic

Panelists: Professor and chair Steve Albert and doctoral student Beth Hoffman​ of the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences
