In recent years, the spread of misinformation has shown itself to be a major threat to public health. This month’s Hot Topics in Practice will consider the impact of misinformation on the media ecosystem and will reveal the essential steps that health-focused organizations can utilize in uncertain times.

In this hour-long webinar, Josh Gryniewicz, CEO of the social change consultancy Odd Duck, will focus on strategies to navigate deceptive messaging across the media. Josh will discuss the misinformation continuum, with a special emphasis on distrust, the importance of storytelling and building trust, and other essential keys to navigating misinformation. He will then discuss actions that will help public health practitioners build trust for pro-health outcomes in their communities.
