This was sent to me today by Phillip Mitchell, a Seattle-area teacher of narrative medicine, in response to my blog post yesterday on my summer reading list with a health humanities/social justice slant. It looks to be a good start, although I’d love to see a widening to health humanities from the too-narrow gaze of narrative medicine. Plus, I’d love to see more of a nursing presence. Unfortunately for me their first conference is when I’ll be in Seville presenting at the International Health Humanities Network annual conference.
We are a diverse group of professionals, physicians, instructors, writers, artists, care givers and patients who have joined together in a grass roots effort. Our passion is to engage in conversation, create a community and explore narrative as it pertains to health, illness and care taking. Learn more.
We are excited to launch our website. Stay tuned for more information and SAVE THE DATE for:
