Event Details

How’s your social media game plan working to address misinformation and COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy? Not sure…Join us on December 2, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. ET for a 1-hour webinar to learn more!ย Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, social media platforms have been used to quickly spread misinformation about COVID-19 prevention and treatment. The result is a lot of frustration and concerns among patients, increased vaccine hesitancy and many questions about what information to believe and trust.

Featured speaker:

Joe Smyser, PhD, CEO of The Public Good Projects (PGP),

an evidence-based nonprofit public health monitoring and communication organization. PGP addresses the worldโ€™s most pressing health issues through evidence-based public health monitoring and analysis, and behavioral health communication.

In this session, health center staff will learn about best practices for identifying and responding to misinformation, as well as strengthen their capacity for using social media platforms to promote accurate, evidence-based health information and combat misinformation starting with COVID-19 vaccination.
