Health is produced by the cultural, social, and economic forces around us. As a key driver of culture, the entertainment industry can play a surprising and imperative role in creating healthy populations by educating audiences and shifting cultural norms and understanding. Boston University School of Public Health is dedicating March as “Narrative Month” and is highlighting stories that have shaped health in media, entertainment, art, and culture. On March 28, we are excited to bring together cultural influencers who have shaped how we think and feel about health.
