He has spoken to hundreds of thousands of students from kindergarten through college and has trained thousands of teachers and health/prevention activists on how to use science-based media education for prevention. Dr. D. leaves audiences laughing, learning and asking for more!
Using state-of-the-art multimedia deconstructions, Peter can educate, while entertaining, on the topics of tobacco prevention, underage and binge drinking, violence prevention, eating disorders, body image, parenting around media, and consumerism.
Having previously run an ad agency for 10 years, Peter D. now uses his advertising knowledge to educate for prevention rather than seduce for profits. He was featured in an episode of the CBS news magazine 48 Hours for his work teaching media literacy.
