Media organizations CatchLight, The Everyday Projects, and Dysturb, with digital strategist Pamela Chen and infectious disease specialist Dr. Jenell Stewart, are pairing health messages with visuals to document the daily impact of COVID-19. Learn how they are leveraging viral tactics and public displays to inform underserved communities around the world. The project, Artists Against an Infodemic, is supported in part by the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford University.

The speakers will host an informal video chat on Grip immediately following the end of the session. They are looking forward to answering your questions and discussing more about the project.

This session is part of the Midway programming. Learn more about the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford University and other great Midway participants in the ONA20 Grip platform.
