Welcome to the Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative

We are a diverse group of health care professionals, caregivers, patients and artists 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 announce the Northwest Narrative Medicine Project: A Monthly Series.

Starting in January 2017, the NWNM Collaborative launched a monthly series with a focus on how stories–spoken, written, visual or performed–help shape our experience of healthcare. Facilitated by patients, writers, and healthcare professionals, each 1.5 hour session will explore a unique perspective and include an interactive component for participants. This series is free and open to the public.

The next event is Tuesday, June 13, 2017
