    Sociology professor Kevin Leicht will testify before a subcommittee of the U.S. House Science, Space and Technology Committee about the impact of disinformation. Leicht’s remarks will focus on the role of social media in fomenting distrust and skepticism toward experts and established scientific information, in particular doubt about COVID-19 vaccines and faith in potential miracle cures.
