Responding to the COVID-19 Infodemic

Class Details

The COVID-19 pandemic highlights the disparities of underserved, minority, and underrepresented communities. This includes understanding of accurate health information, education in hard hit communities, and understanding the importance of inclusion in clinical research to overcome COVID-19. The NNLM Virtual Symposium would be an opportunity to engage with all NNLM Network Members to address misinformation and mistrust, raise awareness about the pandemic, and efforts to combat it. The symposium will be an opportunity to understand COVID-19 and share strategies and programs to help Network Members engage with these communities.

After attending the symposium, participants will be able to:
* Identify key issues that impact medically underserved populations in accessing accurate health information related to COVID-19 and vaccines.
* Apply case studies of presenters and panelists to reproduce activities in their own communities
* Design an outreach and education program to the specific populations they serve
