Vaccines and New Media "Film Festival"
Please join us for a “film festival” focusing on vaccines and new media. The event will explore how global health organizations and private foundations are making the case for U.S. investments in global immunization, using internet videos and social media to reach U.S. policymakers and the American public.
Participants will discuss strategies for using social media to promote the importance of vaccines for global health, including messaging, web analytics, and content. These discussions will be interspersed with videos from various prominent global health organizations. Sandra de Castro Buffington, Director of Hollywood, Health & Society, a program of the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center, will deliver a keynote address about working with Hollywood’s scriptwriters to create global health storylines.
