2021 VIRTUAL NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HEALTH COMMUNICATION, MARKETING AND MEDIA
Communicating Public Health in a Time of Disinformation and Science Skepticism
Thursday, August 26, 2021 1:00 - 2:00 PM (EDT)
TOPIC DESCRIPTION & OVERVIEW
The COVID-19 global pandemic has resulted in many lessons learned, and shown great vulnerabilities in our ability to communicate important public health messages in a time of crisis. The world has changed in many ways, bringing new challenges to the very basic tenets of risk communication, and health communication in general. This session looks at the impact of an increasingly fractured culture, and how it has made communicating public health and science ever more difficult.
