“Combating the ‘fake news’ epidemic – understanding and preventing the spread of misinformation”
Fake news is not new, but as more people turn to social networks as a primary and trusted source of information, misinformation presents a growing threat to the health system and society. What are the public health risks and how can epidemiologists, researchers, and clinicians promote the uptake of evidence-based public health? Join us for the 18th annual SEA Symposium in Saskatoon to explore this topic!
