Surviving a Pandemic podcast: Dr. David Broniatowski

The approval and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine mark a potential turning point in the pandemic, but according to polls, much of the public is still hesitant to get vaccinated. Dr. David Broniatowski, Associate Professor at the George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Associate Director of the George Washington University Institute for Data, Democracy & Politics, shares his research on the misinformation and disinformation around COVID and discusses how bad information can sow public distrust in the vaccine and the country’s larger public health response to the pandemic.

Hosted by Frank Sesno, Healthy You: Surviving a Pandemic is a co-production of the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health and the School of Media and Public Affairs.
