Dr. John Campbell on YouTube

We live in an age fraught with misinformation both federally and journalistically, especially when it comes to the global outbreak of coronavirus. Many educators are taking a grassroots movement to educate people around the world to combat the spread of the coronavirus. Dr. John Campbell a retired Nurse Teacher and A and E nurse based in England who releases daily videos with updates about COVID-19 around the world. He also covers the latest in peer-reviewed research on the topic. Today, Dr. John Campbell has grown his following organically to over 440,000 subscribers over the course of the pandemic. I think when it comes to scholarly and authoritative information, the cream always rises to the top (as one of my interviewees said). I am grateful for people who cut through bias and noise to identify truth and use their platform to present that information to the general public. I find such people who create platforms to amplify their voices in such dark and challenging times to be inspiring. We need scholars to use good media to fight bad media.
