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, and the California Health Care Foundation, among others.
Hollywood, Health & Society has announced a call for entries for the 2018 Sentinel Awards, which honor outstanding writing for television that informs and motivates viewers to make choices for healthier and safer lives. To learn more and submit an entry, visit our awards page.
