“The care of the sick unfolds in stories” (Rita Charon, MD). In the practice of Narrative Medicine, doctors and health care workers stand side by side with artists, writers, and humanities scholars to examine stories, how they are told, and “the power of narrative to change the way care is given and received.”
Veteran writer and performer Catherine Rogers, who now studies Narrative Medicine with Dr. Rita Charon at Columbia University, will present a two-hour creative writing workshop offering hands-on experience to students, artists, educators, and health care professionals interested in Narrative Medicine practice. She will lead participants through a series of free-writing and creative writing exercises drawing from texts of American writers and from her own work.
