Throughout my career, I’ve been at the intersection of health and media – usually how they are connected in the digital world. For the past few years I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to be a board member with the Center for Health Media & Policy, led by the wonderful Barbara Glickstein and Diana Mason.
Now housed within the George Washington University School of Nursing, the Center has a fresh start of sorts to really create leadership and valuable narrative around effective uses of media in healthcare to shift the needle on policy. Last week, the Center convened the updated advisory board in Washington DC to lay the groundwork for the new vision.
During a time when the healthcare landscape is in constant jeopardy of losing funding, influence and the ability to provide coverage to millions of families around the country, the importance of having the voices of those on the frontlines in the industry (e.g. nurses) rise to the surface has never been more important.
I’m definitely looking forward to contributing with this new group of stellar voices/thought leaders who comprise backgrounds in nursing, journalism, economics, policy, tech & public health.
