Our fall issue gives an idea of HH&S’ busy calendar recently—the 2019 Sentinel Awards, with special guests that included Ava DuVernay, Norman Lear, Sam Levinson, Camilla Luddington, Chris Sullivan and Isabella Gomez; events on addiction and mental health, nuclear risk, maternal health, reproductive rights, and older adults; experts weighing in on killer robots, and so much more.
In a sometimes moving and deeply personal ceremony, the 2019 Sentinel Awards honored 13 TV shows for outstanding storylines dealing with critical topics such as addiction, criminal justice, mental health, nuclear risk and sexual assault.
NBC’s medical drama New Amsterdam received the “Imagining a Culture of Health Award” as part of the 2021 Sentinel Awards for the show’s entire body of work during its third season. In addition to New Amsterdam, 11 other shows were celebrated for outstanding storytelling that makes a difference in viewers' lives, including The Good Doctor, Euphoria, Pose, The Handmaid’s Tale, This Is Us and Grey’s Anatomy. Their episodes covered such topics as Covid-19, abortion, mental health, addiction and racism.
