In today's digital landscape, the internet and social media have become primary sources of health information, but misinformation and disinformation pose significant challenges. This panel tackles the critical issue of rebuilding trust in media and combating the spread of falsehoods. How can we equip the public, including the next generation, to identify reliable sources amidst false content, deep fakes, and conflicting opinions? How can health-care professionals, education stakeholders, and community organizations contribute to this effort? What role does the rise of AI and generative language models play, and how can we ensure unbiased and informative public health data sources? Join us as experts examine ways to restore trust in media, promote education and digital literacy, and engage stakeholders in delivering accurate health information.
