Addressing Health Misinformation Through Community | Knight Foundation

November 9, 2021 @ 2:00 pm

Across the country, libraries, educators and civil society generally are leading in playing vital roles in addressing health misinformation in communities. We look forward to hearing insights from experts in the field on how we can best mitigate the impacts of misinformation and empower individuals to seek factual information.

Join Knight Foundation and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) on Tuesday, November 9 for Addressing Health Misinformation Through Community, a special gathering of library, civic, and philanthropic leaders. The U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy will hold a discussion on community-based solutions for addressing health misinformation. Building on the release of Confronting Health Misinformation: The U.S. Surgeon General’s Advisory on Building a Healthy Information Environment, VADM Murthy is announcing the second installment of his office’s efforts to combat health misinformation and disinformation with the launch of a community toolkit for addressing health misinformation.
