Stories of Illness and Health - October 26

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

How does the art of storytelling work to improve health care education and the experience of patient care? In what ways are doctors, patients and other health professionals storytellers?

Stories of Illness and Health invites members of the public, both campus and community, to experience the stories of people living with illness. Through stories shared by participants who have dealt with chronic or acute conditions, audience members will hear first-hand accounts of what is important to patients throughout their health care experience. Following each story, the audience will be invited to reflect on their experience of each narrative and engage in an open dialogue with the storytellers.

Date: Sunday, October 26
Time: 2:00 p.m.
Location: Wolf Performance Hall, London Public Library (Central Branch)
