Reminder: Registration Open for Responding to the COVID-19 Infodemic: An NNLM Virtual Symposium (Online April 8-9, Thurs.-Fri.)

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

This is a reminder that registration is still open for a new NNLM virtual symposium focused on addressing the COVID-19 Infodemic in our communities.

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 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 as well as strategies and programs that can be used to engage with communities.

To learn more and register, please go here. The event will take place on April 8 (Thursday) and April 9 (Friday), from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM CDT each day.
