    EP113 Tackling an Asian American Infodemic with Shahmir Ali and Stella Chong

    In this episode, we chat with Shahmir Ali (PhD in Public Health and Social and Behavioral Sciences at NYU GPH) & Stella Chong (Program Associate, Department of Population Health, NYU Grossman) about their publication: Social Media Use and Misinformation Among Asian Americans During COVID-19. In an effort to understand social media’s unique impact on this underserved, underrepresented, and often invisible community of Asian Americans, Shahmir and Stella published a study examining recent research, news, and reports on COVID-19 among Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and South Asian Americans. The paper calls attention to the unique, complex misinformation found on some social media -- and it documents a growing public health problem in need of tailored policies and interventions.

Want to learn more about Global Public Health but is intimidated on where to start?

I am embarrassed to say I am not plugged in to GPH issues as much as I should be. However, this podcast has really been helping me understand the human, micro level impact of Global Health Issues. The trickle down effects are explored through compelling characters, and the host is amazing at guiding the conversation. Excited to hear more!!!
