Hello everyone,

We invite you to join us next week to attend the upcoming free symposium regarding misinformation and mistrust regarding COVID-19. View the brief (1:07 minute) promotional video<https://youtu.be/Jq7WYliO5no>.

Responding to the COVID-19 Infodemic: An NNLM Virtual Symposium
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the disparities of underserved, minority, and underrepresented communities. This includes ensuring equal understanding of accurate health information, education in hard hit communities, and valuing inclusion in clinical research to overcome COVID-19.

The NNLM Virtual Symposium: Responding to the COVID-19 Infodemic is an opportunity to address misinformation and mistrust, raise awareness about the pandemic, and efforts to combat it. Symposium attendees can expect to come away from the 2-day experience with a better understanding of COVID-19 and share strategies and programs to engage with your community.

Who should attend the symposium?
NNLM invites anyone who is interested in learning more about information-related issues during COVID-19, which includes, but is not limited to: health professionals, librarians, researchers, community-based organization staff, and students.
