"Strategies to combat misinformation"

As health educators, effectively being able to change behavior is critical to the work we do. To successfully be able to change behavior, we must know how to combat the misinformation that is omnipresent in our world today. Being able to utilize behavior change models, taking into consideration the underlying drivers of behavior, will help us to develop personalized strategies that result in the best chance for success.

Join this session to learn more about various strategies you can use to help combat misinformation and help our stakeholders make positive behavior change.
