WE-Spark Health Institute has planned a series of virtual events through July for the public to ask local experts about COVID-19.
“Misinformation about health and research is everywhere and impacts the health and safety of our community,” says executive director Lisa Porter. “We’ve seen this amplified in recent months by the COVID pandemic.”
To help fight fiction with facts and improve public education, WE-Spark Ask the Experts has been created as a resource for those seeking unbiased, fact-based, and up-to-date information.
Its “Community COVID Conversations” series will run for four weeks, highlighting local researchers who have received WE-Spark Igniting Discovery Grant funding for their COVID projects.
