Those Nerdy Girls Has New Plans!


Those Nerdy Girls is turning over a new leaf!

I took the helm on October 1 as the new Executive Director of Those Nerdy Girls. For those of you who don’t know me, I am a psychology and public health expert with a strong focus on the science of communication and misinformation. I’ve published several books and run another science/health communication non-profit called Critica. I am thrilled to be taking over Those Nerdy Girls from the incomparable Ashley Ritter and I’m really looking forward to getting to know our devoted readers better over the next few months.

Those Nerdy Girls will continue to bring you trusted, evidence-based information on COVID and other infectious diseases, especially during the current respiratory season. We will also continue to expand in new directions, with squads of writers focusing on reproductive health, mental health, aging, and data literacy. You can help by continuing to read and share our posts, signing up for and encouraging others to sign up for our Substack newsletter, and giving us your thoughts and feedback along the way. We are here to serve you, so please keep us informed about how we can continue to be helpful as you navigate the complexities of the current health and science landscape.

I can’t wait for what’s in store. In the meantime, stay healthy, stay safe, and stay Nerdy!

Sara Gorman, Executive Director of Those Nerdy Girls
