Marie-Ève Carignan appointed to the expert committee on the socio-economic consequences of misinformation in science and health

Marie-Ève Carignan, Head of the Media Division of the UNESCO-PREV Chair and Professor in the Department of Communication at the Université de Sherbrooke, will be part of a new Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) expert committee examining the socio-economic consequences of misinformation and disinformation in science and health.

Misinformation can affect public confidence in science, jeopardizing the well-being of people, communities and the environment. That’s why the Council of Canadian Academies (CCA) organized this expert panel to examine the consequences of misinformation and disinformation. Alex Himelfarb, Chair of the Steering Committee of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (national level), will be the Chair of the panel.
