The National Educational Media Network--the nation's only media
organization dedicated to recognizing and supporting excellence in
educational media--is conducting a nationwide survey to explore the
feasibility of a juried online directory for medical and health media. One
of the goals of this project is to develop the most comprehensive directory
of distributors and publishers of health and medical films, videos, and
multimedia titles in the US. The directory will also contain a searchable
database of reviewed titles and will provide links to distributor/publisher
and medical Web sites.

You feedback is important to us so please take a moment to fill out the
