Health Research Live:
Staying informed!
How to get accurate information
about COVID-19

The deluge of information about the COVID-19 Coronavirus can feel overwhelming. New developments from various sources flow through our inboxes, listservs, and social media feeds on a daily basis. How do you know what to trust?

Join guests Brendan Nyhan (researcher at Dartmouth College) and Alice Ely (Public Health Council of the Upper Valley) as they discuss managing health information from both a broad and local level. Join in the conversation with your community.

Health Research Live programs include 20 minutes of presentations from experts, 20 minutes of break out groups to discuss issues with your community, and 20 minutes of a larger group discussion. This program will be conducted via Zoom.

This program is produced and organized by Dartmouth Synergy, the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, and Montshire Museum of Science. This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited so we kindly ask that you RSVP.
