About the conference: The first in Lewis Katz School of Medicine history, our [Narrative Medicine] conference welcomes healthcare students, professionals, and other interested individuals to explore various forms of narrative expression, sharpen their critical eye, and nurture their humanity…We’ve got an exciting day planned with workshops and discussions to explore what Narrative Medicine is, its role and value, and the many forms it can take in a medical or health-allied career. Guest talks from physicians and artists sprinkled throughout the day will give us insight into improving care for patients and building a career that celebrates narratives.
