    "Beyond the Very Special Episode: TV Tackles Women’s Health" (Season 12)

    Popular TV shows, aside from being entertaining, can help deliver critical health information for millions of viewers – particularly at a time when education and access to healthcare is threatened not only by social, economic, and behavioral factors, but political ones as well. From breast cancer and the BRCA gene, to pregnancy and abortion, to mental health and racial disparities within the healthcare system, ATX TV Festival and USC Annenberg's Hollywood, Health & Society explore the shows that are putting women’s health front and center, and why including these storylines (and getting them right) is more critical than ever.
