Hollywood, Health & Society announces a call for entries for the 2020 Sentinel Awards, with a submission deadline of July 24. Read the press release.

For 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.

Funding for Hollywood, Health & Society comes from the CDC, The SCAN Foundation, the California Health Care Foundation, the John Pritzker Family Fund, N Square, and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, among others. The program, now celebrating 20 years of service to the TV entertainment industry, serves as a free resource by providing expert consultations and briefings, panel discussions, screenings, custom research trips, social media and more.
