OneWorld, Inc Produces Educational TV Programs to
Benefit the Broader Community

Phone: (203) 407-0250 | Email:

OneWorld partner’s with subject matter experts to produce TV programs that will expand the community's base of knowledge and direct viewers to reliable resources. We focus on Health Care Literacy, Education-at-every level and on Civic Engagement.  We are especially concerned to improve the lives of the poor, the undereducated, and the disenfranchised by linking them, and the general public, to the critical services offered by local, state and national organizations and institutions.


Through our community forums we provide direct contact with various experts, and we provide hands-on guidance and reliable information in dealing with a range of health care, education and civic engagement issues.  We also provide health literacy and educational literature about community and state services.  The links below will take you to articles about each program on which we received coverage on the NHI Internet site. 

Being able to produce these programs and have them edited and enhanced for broadcast on 18 cable stations has been made possible through a grant from the Connecticut Health Foundation. Programs are listed in reverse order with the latest listed first.  We invite other organizations to join us in our efforts to better inform the larger community on a range of health, education and civic issues.  An informed community is a more empowered community Programs are listed in reverse order.
