Surviving the Coronavirus Infodemic
UW & WSU present a statewide conversation on healthy digital practices
COVID-19 is more than just a physical illness — inaccurate and incomplete information spreads just as rapidly around the globe, complicating efforts to contain the virus and keep communities safe and healthy. The state of Washington has been at the forefront of the crisis, taking action since COVID-19 first appeared in the U.S.
Join experts from the University of Washington and Washington State University for a livestream summit addressing coronavirus misinformation. You’ll have a chance to participate from home as panelists share tools and tips for concerned citizens to cut through the confusion and build healthier information practices.
