The all-female team of “Nerdy Girl” scientists has steadfastly delivered trustworthy, timely, and evidence-based advice to social media audiences via the @DearPandemic platform since March 2020. 150k+ followers, one thousand Facebook posts, hundreds of media appearances, and dozens of invited lectures later, they’ve built their way towards a communication framework broadly applicable to a variety of health promotion initiatives. Their hope is that this framework and associated lessons learned can empower fellow health promotion professionals to steward efforts improving equitable access to credible, relatable health information in their specific settings.
