National Public Health Week Film Festival

The National Public Health Week Film Festival will be held April 6-11, 2009. Events of Saturday, April 11, will include Public Service Announcements (PSAs) created by high school students from communities of color. The goals of these PSAs were to: (1) engage high school students from communities of color in the creation and production of video messages about a public health topic that affects their community, (2) provide student mentors from the University in the development of public messages, and (3) make available a forum at the University where participants can express their ideas about health disparities to diverse audiences.
