    • News Commentary

My guests this week are Nat Gyenes and Megan Marrelli with Meedan, a non-profit building digital tools for journalists, helping them fact check information quickly and turn it around for the public.

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit last year, Nat – with her training in public health – and Megan – with her training in journalism – put together a digital tool called Health Desk. The goal: to make it easier for journalists to understand complex health-related topics and share information accurately.
