Elemental Medium has published a special week-long series “Six Months In” reflecting on where we’ve been, what we’ve learned and what the future holds for the COVID-19 pandemic. In the first of the series, Elemental states “one of the most challenging aspects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is that even six months in so much is still unknown and uncertain. While it can feel like the leaders tasked with navigating the pandemic are ill-equipped and unprepared (specifically in the United States), the fact remains that there are many scientists, doctors, and health leaders who are well-trained in pandemic response and have been working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic since the beginning.”
“Given the challenge with communication during this pandemic and given that certain institutions have significant political limitations that impact the scope of their communication, Elemental created a list of 50 health and science experts to help you separate truth from misinformation and stay up to date.” These experts come from varying backgrounds in the medical field and are currently employed by highly respected hospitals, universities, public health organizations, etc.
Do these “experts” have more insight than other more highly visible “experts”? Maybe, maybe not, but it might be worth taking a look, maybe get a different perspective, maybe calm the mind or maybe increase your anxiety. Whatever the outcome, it is always worth listening to other experts, less prominent but not necessarily less respected. If you are interested in “meeting” the top 50 experts and look at their background, visit the Elemental Medium website. As always, stay well, stay safe and stay tuned!
