How is modern media influencing our health? Are the images used to
communicate health ethically portraying the communities they feature? What
determines whether a health issue will be featured in the news? How can new
media tools be used to raise awareness about social issues? What are some
examples of effective public health campaigns? How is the interface between
media and health affecting us?
We invite you to "get the scoop" about interactions between media and health
this spring at the University of Washington Students for Equal Health 4th
Annual Summit on Health Inequality. The 2010 conference theme uses media as
a fresh, exciting perspective to inspire innovative conversations about
health in our modern world. We are examining the influence of social media,
broadcasting, photography, journalism, television, documentaries, and other
new media tools on the portrayal and perception of health today. Come and
join the conversation!
Current list of speakers includes keynote Nancy Lee and: Mary Mapes, Lisa
Cohen, Daniel Hart, Kathy Gill, Anita Crofts, Tom Paulson, and Ansel Herz.
Our speakers have worked or are currently working with: Seattle
Post-Intelligencer, CBS News, Washington Global Health Alliance, Social
Marketing Services, Inc., UW Department of Global Health, Health Alliance
International, PATH, UW Native Voices, I-TECH, UW Masters of Communication
in Digital Media.
Co-sponsored by: UW Department of Global Health, UW Department of
Communication, and ASUW.
