I am Dr. Michael Rich, the Director of the Center on Media and Child Health at Children's Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health. But more importantly, I am a parent, just like many of you. As a former Hollywood filmmaker, I am a lover of media. But as a pediatrician, I see that media have both positive and negative effects on children's health.
I'm here as The Mediatrician® to answer your questions about media and health. It is my goal to provide you with science-based answers and practical solutions that can help the children in your life use media in ways that can enrich their development. What's YOUR question about media? Go ahead and ask! Do you want to add a link to Ask the Mediatrician® to your doctor's office, school, or organization website? Click here for instructions!
