Storrs Campus

Over the past year, the spread of misinformation and conspiracy theories have flourished throughout the United States which has had many consequences. COVID-19 misinformation has led to unwarranted deaths globally. Election misinformation led to the insurrection of the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. Please join us in discussing the harm of misinformation with our panel of experts on the subject.

Following the panel, Common Cause CT will conduct a workshop to give us tools to use to identify and handle misinformation.

Agenda: 1pm-2 pm: Misinformation panel featuring Dr. Enders, Dr. Etudo and Dr. Pagoto.

2pm-3pm: Common Cause CT facilitated workshop.
