The Interstitium

Please join us for the Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative's inaugural Seattle event, featuring storytelling by health care professionals. We invite you to tell a health-care related story on the theme, "My First Time". Your story can be funny, serious, heartfelt, absurd, lyrical, etc. We are seeking story-tellers and story-appreciators, as we gather together to build a narrative medicine community.

The Interstitium is SOLD OUT. We are thrilled at the response and interest in this inaugural event. Stay tuned for future Interstitium events.
