Nashville Public Television’s Children’s Health Crisis project is a multi-year initiative built around a series of eight documentaries on the state of children’s health in Tennessee. The project launched in 2009 in response to the increased number of children facing risks from poor or non-existent prenatal care, the rising epidemic of childhood obesity, misinformation about vaccinations, mental health issues, and adolescent sexuality.
