The powerful digital platforms such as Facebook and Google influence our health in ways that are often obscured from public view and understanding.
While much attention has focused on the adverse health impacts of the platforms’ transmission of disinformation, misinformation and racism, there are many other issues to also consider.
Please join us for an online discussion on Friday 11 June at 11am (AEST) that aims to engage the public health and wider community in identifying solutions and ways forward to a safer, healthier digital environment.
