Media Rx: Access to Medicine through Entertainment

Apr 21, 2014
6:30 PM PT Reception; 7:00 pm Panel Discussion
Los Angeles




Join us for a participatory dialogue with writers, creators, and health experts on the use of television and film to positively impact global health, with a focus on the underexplored topic of the high costs of life-saving medicine. In association with UCLA's Global Media Center for Social Impact, we will present data and examples of compelling story lines that have impacted specific health issues.  We will also feature a public health expert who can share information about access to affordable medicine and treatment, in order to brief attendees on the key issues. There will be ample time for questions from and dialogue with the audience of writers and creators.

Clips from the vast Paley archive of programs will be used to catalyze conversation and provide context, and the Global Media Center will offer sustained outreach to the creative community as a free resource.
