The Importance of COVID-19 Data: Empowering Communities through Information

People portrayed as data points

Webinar Details

Category: COVID-19, Data

When information sharing turns into information overload, it can be difficult to determine what guidance to follow. And with misinformation in the mix, managing community well-being during a pandemic can be an uphill battle. Clear, accurate COVID-19 data should drive decisions about pandemic response to protect our health and the health of our Metro Atlanta community. This webinar will look at:

  • COVID-19 data from across the region, ranging from risk to vaccine efficacy and distribution, and ideas for a path to recovery
  • Understanding inequities when implementing COVID-19 mitigation strategies
  • The importance of producing accessible, easy-to-understand information to improve health outcomes and combat misinformation
