Upcoming Event

VitalTalks Live Presents: Breaking Barriers: Media’s Impact on Public Health

Media can serve as a catalyst for positive change, influencing behaviors and extending lifespans. From advocating for smoke-free environments to promoting COVID-19 vaccinations and bolstering access to harm reduction services, public health campaigns have left an indelible mark on society. But, as the pandemic revealed, disinformation on health can have a dangerous and lasting effect on the public’s trust.


Join us for a night of networking and thought-provoking conversation that promises to illuminate the transformative potential of media in promoting health and well-being for all.
