On March 29-30, 2022, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a workshop aimed at examining the roles of trust and trustworthiness in the public health emergency and response (PHEPR) science enterprise - the institutions, the research process, and the researchers and practitioners - across the continuum of pre-event, event, response, and mitigation. The first day examined issues of trust in PHEPR science, where they originate, and what can be done to build and maintain trust in public health agencies. The second day shifted discussions to communication and strategies to address misinformation and ensure clear understanding of public health communications. The final session allowed workshop participants and public attendees - through an interactive Miro board session - to reflect on workshop discussions and share strategies to build public trust over the next 5 years. This Proceedings of a Workshop-in Brief summarizes the presentations and discussions that occurred at the workshop.
