As it marks its "Super 17," Doctors for Global Health (DGH), a non-governmental organization established by Einstein faculty member Dr. Lanny Smith, has launched a video contest, "Challenging Scarcity: Health Justice for All." Through the contest, DGH invites individuals and/or groups of up to four to submit an original, creative video that explores their vision of scarcity in the world today in support and in celebration of health justice.
"At DGH, we defend that health begins where we live, work, and play, and therefore that "health justice" can be defined in the widest sense, recognizing that there are numerous socio-economic factors responsible for health inequities across the globe," said Dr. Smith, who is associate professor of clinical medicine and clinical family and social medicine. "Through video, we hope folks will explore the social determinants of health while sharing their perspectives for achieving health justice for all."
Videos up to five minutes long may be submitted in any style or genre, including narrative, experimental, video art, documentary, music and animation. The winning videos, which will be selected from all submissions made by the contest deadline, July 10, 2012, will be shown at the Doctors for Global Health 17th General Assembly in Boston on August 11, 2012, and all entries will be posted online at dghonline.org, as well as on the DGH Facebook page.
Entries will be judged by a panel of expert professionals selected by Doctors for Global Health. For details on how to submit videos to the competition, visit the DGH Video Contest web page. And for further information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doctors for Global Health is a private, not-for-profit organization promoting health, education, art and other human rights throughout the world. DGH is comprised of hundreds of health professionals, students, educators, artists, attorneys, engineers, retirees and others who, working together, build long-term relationships between people and communities around the world – in locations including Chiapas and Oaxaca in Mexico, Estancia and Santa Marta in El Salvador, Guatemala, Uganda and the United States – to find effective solutions to social justice issues.
