ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/13 -- Film Executive Marlon Campbell of A-Match Pictures, LLC announced today he has accepted the role of Good Will Ambassador to the Global Health and Humanitarian Summit for Emory University, School of Medicine (www.ghhs2013.org). Campbell will participate and speak on panel at the 4th annual 2013 Global Health and Humanitarian Summit on April 12-14th.

As Goodwill Ambassador, Campbell will be responsible for spearheading efforts to place similar Summits all around the world. Campbell has already begun talks about Summits at MIT and is planning trips to China and South Africa for discussions on Summits there. "I have spent a lot of years in show business, traveling all around the world. In this time, I have learned a lot of truths about the world... some good and some bad. I realized the bad won't fix itself and began strategic research back in 1996. All of that research, travel and expenses have culminated to this moment. I humbly and graciously accept this role of Goodwill Ambassador. I will utilize every resource to ensure that I've contributed to efforts that will make the world a better place for generations to come," said Campbell.

The Summit focuses on creating awareness and resources for both Domestic and Foreign issues like Education, Shelter, Clean Drinking Water, Food and Healthcare. Organizer Ann Bassarab is spearheading efforts to ensure the Summit's operational direction and had this to say about Campbell's involvement: "As an Organizer of the Annual Global Health and Humanitarian Summit at Emory University's School of Medicine, I applaud the huge contribution and commitment to humanitarianism from Goodwill Ambassador Marlon Campbell."

This is the fourth year of the Summit, originally founded by Dr. Neil Shulman, aka Doc Hollywood, the original Author for the 1991 Blockbuster starring Michael J. Fox and Woody Harrelson. Dr. Shulman has been an Associate Professor at Emory for 46 years. Campbell's studio A-Match Pictures/Angel Media is currently producing Dr. Shulman's latest effort, "The Corporate Kid," based on the novel of the same name. The novel was written by Dr. Neil Shulman and Susan Wrathall. Campbell will also direct the film.

As an extension of the Summits, Campbell and Shulman have spearheaded The Global Humanitarian Movement Society (www.tghms.org). TGHMS will serve as an action network in the humanitarian efforts worldwide. Campbell also will be releasing his compelling autobiography "Through the Eyes of a Fighter" soon. Accompanying Ambassador Campbell to the Summit will be his Mother Jerry Banks, who is credited as the inspiration behind Tyler Perry's beloved "Madea," and his younger brother, Hollywood's latest phenomenon Actor Lucky Johnson (Co-Star of the Blockbuster Contraband, The Philly Kid and HBO's TREME), NBA legend Dikembe Mutombo, and Hunter Doherty ("Patch Adams"). Other surprise Celebs are expected!
