Students Against Misinformation

Educational Category

Academic Year
Students Against Misinformation (SAM) strives to combat scientific misinformation through analyzing, discussing, and communicating primary research. Misinformation is more rampant than ever due to the popularity of social media and the ease of sharing at the click of a button. We will focus on misconstrued scientific ideas in the fields of vaccination, climate change, and many others. Small group discussions and journal club sessions will be conducted to acquire pertinent knowledge and skills. Our culminating goal is to convey research-based information to social media groups and have an electronic platform to document and share our findings. In our journey to stand against misinformation, we will build up our members with expertise that will serve them in their professional endeavors.
