Call for Proposals: NNLM COVID-19 Infodemic Symposium (Online April 8-9) — Deadline Fri., Feb. 26

(via the Network of the National Library of Medicine – Greater Midwest Region)

The Network of the National Library of Medicine invites proposals for a virtual symposium, Responding to the COVID-19 Infodemic, on April 8-9 (Thursday-Friday). The COVID-19 pandemic highlights the disparities of underserved, minority, and underrepresented communities. This includes ensuring equal understanding of accurate health information, education in hard hit communities, and valuing inclusion in clinical research to overcome COVID-19.

The NNLM Virtual Symposium is an opportunity to engage with NNLM Network Members to address misinformation and mistrust, raise awareness about the pandemic, and efforts to combat it. Symposium attendees can expect to come away from this experience with a better understanding of COVID-19 and share strategies and programs to engage with your community.

Proposals are due on Friday, February 26. Decisions will be made and presenters/panelists will be notified of their acceptance by mid-March. To submit a proposal, please fill out this form.
