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.

The 2017 Northwest Narrative Medicine Conference was a success!


Thank you to all of our amazing speakers and performers. Thank you to all the participants. Thank you to all of our community supporters. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Community of Practice Monthly Workshop Series Coming in May


Starting in May 2018, the Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative will begin its Community of Practice Monthly Workshop Series! Each interactive workshop will focus on developing narrative skills in community. Each month we will select a different focus/topic, and will host a featured visiting facilitator. Click HERE to find out more.

Participants should plan on engaging in discussion, writing, creating, sharing, and interacting with other participants. While the topic and facilitator will rotate, the format will be the same.

We will meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at The Lucky Labrador Brew Pub on Hawthorne Blvd.
