Screenings and Impact

The film’s Global Impact Team leverages the documentary for discussions around health equity and global childhood cancer.

How I Live has had a dynamic journey,  screening at film festivals, at universities & medical schools and as part of global childhood cancer policy initiatives. 

The film’s policy impact journey began at The United Nations General Assembly and has gone on to screen as part of The World Health Organizations’ Global Initiative on Childhood Cancer.

The film was employed as part of a workshop to catalyze the development of the National Pediatric Cancer Plans in the Central America/ PAHO Region, and recently our Global Impact Team was featured in the special edition of Pan American Journal of Public Health on Childhood Cancer. See the full recoding of the webinar here.
