#ScienceUpFirst, Art Alongside: Debunking Works! 📱

This pandemic has taught us that misinformation costs lives. But a clear, straightforward debunk can help change minds and stop the spread of misinformation.

The best way to give corrections is clearly, often, and in a debunk “sandwich”: lead with the truth, warn about the myth, explain how it’s misleading, and finish by restating the fact. 🥪😋

Sharing good information in a clear and compassionate way can stop misinformation in its tracks. You can be the change you want to see in your network! And if you’re looking for good information to start your debunking journey, check out our share page with all our previous posts.


Today’s art is by artist-extraordinare Emma Smith from Manitoba! 🤩🖌️ She was inspired by the way the pandemic is changing the way we communicate within our communities and the ways that information is shared online in a variety of media/formats.

Emma Smith is a graphic designer and environmentalist currently based in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Treaty 1 Territory). Emma has been drawn to science communications for as long as she can remember, simply because it allows her to combine all of her passions together: people, art, story-telling, and nature.
