Crafting Media Strategies that Accelerate Policy Change

Each fall, Grantmakers in Health offers programming designed for funders with a strong interest in health policy. This year, GIH invited Media Impact Funders to co-sponsor the event, bringing a media lens to the conversation. The conversation explored how the strategic use of media can expedite health policy objectives, and considered ways to optimize media investments.
