We are THRILLED to announce that our paper “Fight Like a Nerdy Girl: The Dear Pandemic Playbook for Combating Health Misinformation” won the 2022 Editor in Chief Award from the American Journal of Health Promotion!! 🤩🙌
“My Editor in Chief Award winning paper this year comes from that KWBW section and was written by self-proclaimed “Nerdy Girls.” Led by Dartmouth’s Dr. Lindsey Leininger, this paper was co-authored by a cohort of brilliant researchers, also from all parts of the country, who have committed to being “your trusted messengers for practical and factual health information.” As is detailed in their paper about their “Dear Pandemic Playbook,” they set out to “invigorate the scientific discipline of infodemiology… by intentionally bringing together many disciplines to share perspectives including data science, health communication, behavioral science, and epidemiology.” Now with over 2000 posts on their “Those Nerdy Girls” website, these scholars hope that “by combining infodemic practice and research, we can be helpful to fellow health professionals working hard to amplify the impact of good health information and lessen the impact of the bad.”
