Time Global Health Summit: Hope?

NEW YORK, New York — The closing sessions at the Time Global Health Summit, I hope, left the audience with a feeling of hope and a call to action.

Bono appeared above our heads as a giant projected image, likening the Summit to a health Woodstock Fest, but with a critical mission. I loved his words — that these challenges and days ahead are an “adventure” to be embraced and a time to define ourselves as citizens of the planet.

Pat Mitchell, president of PBS, called for a more engaged media. Her comments are worth taking to heart.

Ironically, though, most every session called for more public engagement and political leadership. However, besides the over-sized Time Magazine cover images and Time‘s hosting of the event, the media continues to fail to deliver on these long-term, urgent issues.
