About the event
With the rapidly evolving science of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, science communicators are working harder than ever to make sure people are equipped with accurate information to make safe decisions. However, trust in scientific and medical establishments is not equally warranted across communities. How can science communicators take that into account?
Join the SciComm Collective for a conversation on scientific misinformation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccine, with a focus on how historical and sociocultural contexts affect distrust of medicine in marginalized communities. Through a panel discussion featuring three speakers working at the interface of science, medicine, and community, we will engage with topics of viral science communication, cultural competency, and accessibility of scientific content for diverse audiences.
