COVID-19 information (and misinformation) is nearly as ubiquitous as the virus itself. Media coverage makes every new observation, research finding, or data point seem critical. Physicians and scientists often seem to contradict one another and even themselves. So, how do you sort out what's important without becoming overwhelmed? Dr. Mitch Garber, a preventive medicine physician and engineer, helps cut through the baffling, often biased media coverage and politics to focus on what the science actually means. He will share basic background on the disease, how it is spread, where we are right now, what the future may hold, and where to get accurate information.
