A MESSAGE FROM BILL RYERSON, PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER OF POPULATION MEDIA CENTER
 

In light of the growing concerns around COVID-19, we at PMC are adapting our current practices to ensure the health and safety of our workforce, our partners, and the communities around us. We have suspended travel and our staff are following recommended practices on working from home, social distancing, and healthy hygiene habits. We are also quickly creating content for current shows to include content relevant to the pandemic and will update you about this as it unfolds. As you know, our shows reach global audiences, many of which are in areas of high risk for the current outbreak.
