Geena Davis and Madeline Di Nonno were invited to NIH where Davis spoke about gender portrayals and health. They brainstormed with NIH associate director for research on women's health Dr. Vivian Pinn and other NIH science policy strategists including NIH deputy director for intramural research Dr. Michael Gottesman, NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci, CC director Dr. John Gallin, NIH associate director for behavioral and social sciences research Dr. Robert Kaplan and Dr. James Anderson, director of NIH's Division of Program Coordination, Planning and Strategic Initiatives. During the hour-long session, participants talked about strategies for balancing gender portrayals and how everyone's overall health might be improved as a result. Photos: NIH/Ernie Branson
