For nearly two decades, the Sentinel Awards have recognized exemplary achievements in TV storylines that inform, educate and motivate viewers to make choices for healthier and safer lives. For audiences here and around the world, television often provides both entertainment and factual information about a wide range of health topics and social issues.
As the entertainment landscape expands and programs continue to push boundaries, topics such as disease, injury, maternal health, disability, violence, discrimination and more are being explored through dynamic storytelling. The Sentinel Awards are funded through the generous support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The SCAN Foundation, N Square Collaborative, the John Pritzker Family Fund, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, and the California Health Care Foundation, among others.
