2022 Film

How We Heal

Our young Healthy NewsWorks journalists created a 20-minute film on ways people can heal from challenges. They spoke with therapists, a pediatrician, a medical historian, a dancer, and even an NFL player who discussed what healing is and ways one can heal when facing a difficult time. Check out the trailer below for a preview of the film. Also, watch a talkback with several of our filmmakers with NBC10’s Tracy Davidson.

Our students’ film is also available for private screenings. Please contact Healthy NewsWorks program manager Mia Blitstein at mblitstein@healthynewsworks.org or outreach manager Diane Davis at ddavis@healthynewsworks.org to arrange one in your classroom, for your community organization, or for your company.

We are excited that “How We Heal” has been selected for screening during the 2022 San Diego International Kids’ Film Festival.

We’ve created a page about healing that includes our students’ book, video clips, and activities that you can be shared in your classroom or at home.

Since 2003, Healthy NewsWorks has been empowering elementary and middle school students to become researchers, writers, and confident communicators who advance health understanding and literacy through their factual publications and digital media.
