Combating disinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic

Caitlin Polochak
Regional Public Relations Manager, Amazon, USA

I am a strategic communications specialist with experience in the development and successful implementation of local, regional and national public relations and media relations campaigns, internal communications, marketing communications plans, and social media strategies. I am a crisis communications expert with extensive experience in quickly responding to urgent media requests and emergency situations. I served as the key media point of contact for Cook County Health, one of the largest public health systems, for the first year and a half of the COVID-19 pandemic. This role enabled me to be equipped to serve as a Midwest PR lead at Amazon.
