Last Thursday, CMCH Director Dr. Michael Rich gave Grand Rounds at Children’s Hospital of Alabama.  In an article about his lecture, Dr. Rich spoke about considering media use and exposure as matters of public health rather than a debate about morals and values. 

His hope is that the entertainment industry will be revolutionized as research establishes the connection between media and health risks, much like the tobacco industry has changed since becoming the center of a public health debate in the 1960’s.
