Health misinformation is a widespread problem, with false or misleading information about both longstanding health concerns and emergent situations spreading rapidly. Sometimes questionable health information is obvious, but it can also be difficult to recognize and can potentially reach millions of people. This module will discuss strategies for identifying health misinformation and contextually appropriate methods for addressing it.
