Although people around the world are very aware of misinformation's often devastating consequences, they often have fewer ideas about the possible solutions.  Join GVSU Journalism Professor Jeff Kelly Lowenstein for a discussion that will offer thoughts about the possibilities collaborative journalism presents to help counter  misinformation and create trusted communities for people to receive and discuss accurate information. This program is in support of the museum’s Newsflash! The Story of Journalism in Holland exhibition.
