A video of a talk by Jonathan Jarry
11 a.m., September 25, 2022
This Sunday we will watch and discuss a video from Bay Area’s SkepTalk on “How to Effectively Push Back Against Misinformation.”
This informative talk will address fears of the backfire effect, as well as provide evidence-based recommendations on how best to push back against misinformation, using examples drawn from the ivermectin saga, Havana syndrome, and multiple chemical sensitivity.
The speaker, Jonathan Jarry, is a science communicator with McGill University’s Office for Science and Society, dedicated to separating sense from nonsense on the scientific stage. He has a Master’s degree in molecular biology, and he brings his experience in cancer research, human genetics, rehabilitation research, and forensic biology to the work he does for the public. With cardiologist Dr. Christopher Labos, he co-hosts the award-winning medical podcast The Body of Evidence. He talks about science every Friday on CTV Montreal News and is regularly interviewed in both English- and French-language media.
