Misinformation and Public Health: Implications for Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Grantees

This interactive webinar offered an opportunity for PREP Grantees to learn more about the science of misinformation including about the history of misinformation and why addressing misinformation is critically important. Participants shared their experiences with misinformation related to their PREP work in communities and learned about efforts underway to address such issues. They learned practical strategies for how they can address misinformation and lessons learned from existing efforts.

By the end of this webinar, participants were able to:

  • Define misinformation and its impact on public health;
  • Describe two reasons why misinformation about PREP programming is easily spread through communities; and
  • Identify at least two strategies to address misinformation in your community.
