Together Well Writing Workshop

October 20, 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic has shined a bright light on all the ways in which our current healthcare system is broken - provider burnout and stress, patient access, inefficiencies, cost, etc. Most importantly, this public health crisis has made it impossible to ignore the systemic racism and inequities that have always existed in our communities, our institutions, and even in our professional and personal relationships. In response to this, we have created Together Well, a story campaign highlighting the ways that connection, collaboration, and community can help rebuild a new system that centers the human experience, and promotes health, justice and wellbeing for all. Join us in an interactive workshop to WRITE, REVISE, and SHARE your stories of health and healthcare during a global pandemic. To find out more about the TOGETHER WELL project visit the website here.

In this workshop participants will be asked to read, write, and discuss. If you require an accommodation, please contact NWNMC at
