The first phone call: Biff Hollingsworth connects with Margaret Ecker

Biff Hollingsworth, Collecting and Public Programming Archivist with the Southern Historical Collection, delineates more of the timeline at the start of UNC’s partnership with the Student Health Coalition. Margaret Ecker recounts their first phone call in early 2013, a conversation which significantly influenced discussions of project plans moving forward at a Coalition gathering just a few months later. John Davis notes that the May 2013 discussions focused primarily on what it would look like to partner with UNC instead of Vanderbilt, moving away from a documentary film, and how they would retain agency and control over their own narrative.
