Sorting Fact From Fiction- Fighting the Infodemic
September 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT
Join us to learn how to sort fact from fiction as Dr. Jevin West gives us tools to cut through attempts to mislead us.

Drawing on a deep well of expertise in statistics and computational biology, West will drill down on examples of disinformation and give tips on how to get to the facts.
