About New Narratives In Health
Thanks to the Kahlert Foundation's generous gifts, we have leveraged the University of Utah Health sponsorship with the Sundance Institute and Film Festival to produce four short, award-winning documentary films to improve lives. New Narratives in Health is designed to raise awareness, philanthropy, and impact policies that improve the quality of life for our communities. This initiative is based on the idea that scientists and artists need to work together to more broadly communicate advances in knowledge.

When her active, 70-year-old Papa suddenly dies of a preventable health issue, Jenna grapples with her dream of a career in tribal health while facing her own mental health crisis.
