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.

The January session of Hot Topics in Practice will focus on how health communicators can approach the challenges of mis- and disinformation. From gaps in scientific knowledge to propaganda and conspiracy theories, this session will focus on the five essential keys to better understand the information landscape. Participants will learn about ways to take action in their work as they navigate this landscape.

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.

Register today to learn more about navigating misinformation to advance public health.
