The University of Michigan School of Public Health presents its "In Reel Time" film series, with a focus on Pulitzer Center-supported documentaries targeted at critical global health issues.

The series kicks off on Friday, September 21, 2018, with films addressing Healthcare Access. On Friday, November 16, 2018, the focus is on films addressing Maternal & Child Health, and on Friday, December 14, 2018, the focus is on films addressing Violence, Migration & Health.

Each of the three screenings are held in Room 1655 SPH 1, from 11:00am-12:50pm

According to the WHO, nearly 400 million people do not have timely access to critical health services. Additionally, despite being a major focus of the UN's Millennium Development Goals, there are still major obstacles to improving health outcomes for mothers and their children. And finally, forced migration has caused a huge spike in the number of refugees and migrants, who often have unique health needs as a result of enduring violence and hardship.

Join the Office of Global Public Health and the Pulitzer Center as we explore these issues around the world and the innovative ways people are addressing these disparities. Free popcorn provided.
