In this panel as part of the 2017 Circulating Health Conference hosted by the U.C. Berkeley Center for Social Medicine, BMSG Director Lori Dorfman discusses the intersection between media and public health, including the role environments and policy play in shaping population health; the way the news helps set the agenda for public debate of issues that affect health; and how health is framed in the media — often as an outcome of individual behavior, rather than social factors. Dr. Dorfman also explains the difference between media advocacy and social marketing, and she highlights the role of journalism in holding government to account for its actions that impact health.
