Birmingham teaching artist and educator David Edward Perry has been accepted into the prestigious Harvard Medical School for its new Master of Science in Media, Medicine, and Health. This degree program is the first of its kind to offer storytelling /media arts-driven curriculum focusing on improving public health in our communities. David’s work uses the comedic mind to bridge toward mental health wellness. This opportunity to study at Harvard Medical School is going to yield much success and a near $100k price tag.
A gathering of Birmingham’s best talent is coming together to help raise tuition donations with an exciting Friday “One Night Only “variety show at Homewood Theatre. The evening is a throwback to the classic variety shows of Carol Burnett and Sonny and Cher. Come out and enjoy vaudeville spirited laughs, dance, surprises, and song from Birmingham’s best actors, dancers, singers, and even a storybook reading bear.
Thank you for coming out to the show and helping David to help others build better pathways of sustaining positive mental health.
