NWNMC Community Gathering

September 20, 2022


It’s a community gathering! Are you curious about narrative medicine? What it is and what it has the potential to do? Us, too! Join Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative to explore this question together. At this community of practice you will learn more about our organization and what we’ve been up to. We’ll give a quick overview of our narrative medicine programs and highlights across the last year. Of course, we will have the opportunity to read, write, reflect, and share. Learn about opportunities to get involved in NWNMC and the narrative medicine community in the northwest.
