Webinar: The Role of Information During a Global Health Crisis

March 30 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

“Join the authors of the recent JASIST opinion paper … ‘Global health crises are also information crises: A call to action‘ to discuss the role that information scientists should play in addressing the current crisis and preparing for future crises.

In the paper, the authors recommend the formation of ‘special interest groups within professional associations; specifically, using this paper as a platform, information scientists should meet to develop a “formal” shared research, training, policy, implementation agenda centered around the application of information science to global health crises and then meet with global health (clinical, research, and policy) colleagues to share and refine this agenda and make it the most relevant and impactful.’

This webinar and discussion will serve as the first step in moving this action item forward.”
